Drone Shearing Video Captivates World
May 27, 2016

The Border Mail asks the questions: Is it a complex jigsaw puzzle? Or a close-up peek at an insect factory? These are some of the suggestions that have been made by the more than a million viewers from around the world given a glimpse into the intricacies of shearing in outback Queensland, thanks to Andrew Hughes.

Hughes was back home last week to help his parents shear. He packed his drone and set it loose above the sheep yards as shearing got underway. The trained eye can see the logical flow of cream-colored sheep through the drafting gate and up to the shed at one side, while the shearing shed spits out little white lozenges at regular intervals.
