Waimate Shears

For half a century the Waimate Shears NZ Spring Shearing Competition has attracted shearers and wool handlers to race the clock, and their mates.

Shearers from around New Zealand compete in events including the elite speed shear, machine and blade shearing, and wool handling.

Come along and cheer on these men and women who can shear a sheep and sort the wool in record time.  

Entertainment for the whole family.
