Quick Shears

 

QUICK SHEARS  – a shearing competition for the shearers of today (individuals and teams).

In the old days, shearers coimg_8585mpeted with each other to be the fastest in the shed – to shear the most sheep in a day shearer-slqor over the week. At first the tools of the trade were blade shears, so the strength and finesse of the shearer’s hand opening and closing the blades was theimg_6030-2 key to taking off the wool.

Then mechanised hand pieces became the norm, combs and cutters the way to shear – the early power tools of the shearers’ trade.
