Golden Shears

Golden Shears - the Grand final is so exciting!

The best sheep shearers, wool pressers and wool handlers put it all on the line for the title in this Shearing and Woolhandling Championship over an action packed event from Thursday 28 February to Saturday 2 March 2019. 

Held at the Trust House Recreation Centre Stadium in Masterton, people flock (get it… sheep joke) from all over to get a glimpse of speed shearing at its best.

The three day event encompasses novice, junior, intermediate, senior and open shearing competitions along with junior, senior and open wool handling events and singles wool pressing competitions, as well as the coveted triathlon award.
