Clipping Chicks Biggar shearing marathon - video

Waiting for Video...

Four women spent the day shearing in a charity marathon at Biggar Show today (Saturday).

Sheep were rushed on to their platforms, clipped and returned and, without pausing to draw breath, each shearer started work on the next.

They hoped to shear a total of 800 sheep at the agricultural show in Lanarkshire on Saturday, to raise funds for Cancer Research and Motor Neurone Disease.

See this week’s Gazette, out on July 23, to find out how they got on.
