Property Brokers Running of the Wools
This event is on 09/03/2018 10:30 am until 1:00 pm
The Property Brokers Running of the Wools is a spectacle – around 1,000 sheep being herded through the picturesque Manawatu town of Feilding.
The sheep, under the guidance of experienced shepherds from Potaka Station, leave pens near the Sale Yards and run down Manchester St, around the Clock Tower and back towards their mustering point near the start.
This unique spectacle includes a range of fun activities on the day and coincides Feilding’s famous livestock sales (largest in the Southern Hemisphere) and the award-winning Feilding Farmers Market.
The Running of the Wools is a jammed packed fun event, that celebrates our unique Kiwi rural life and it’s FREE!
