December 13, 2013

A team of five New Zealand shearers has established a new world record for lamb shearing. They shore 2,638 lambs in eight hours and it will be registered as the first official five-stand lamb shearing record. 
 
The top individual tally was claimed by Angus Moore, who shore 607 lambs. Tallies for the others ranged from 573 to 449.
