FARMING MATTERS: All hands on deck for sheep shearing

Sheep shearing is well under way around the country and we had our own small flock shorn recently, when it was a case of all hands on deck with help from family and friends who helped out with handling the ewes and rolling the fleeces. We don’t have a sheepdog, so the flock was rounded up with the quad bike as the ewes and lambs were funnelled into the field shed where the shearer Richard Belgrove was waiting for them. Richard is a neighbouring sheep farmer who has a mobile shearing rig on the back of his Land Rover and he travels around the area to help shear small flocks.
