Toyota Hilux presents NZ Speed Shearing Championship in association with Acto, Supershear & Lister
Top ranked shearers in the country are competing for the fourth annual New Zealand Speed Shearing Championship.
With heats and finals, they’ll battle on stage against the clock. Unbelievably, the fastest will shear a sheep top-to-tail in around 20 seconds!
In 2017, the ten best shearers in Aotearoa including current and previous world champions Johnny Kirkpatrick and Rowland Smith were whittled down to a thrilling two-sheep final of Dion Kine and Jimmy Smueals – Dion led throughout to take a narrow win.
Who will win one of New Zealand’s most coveted rural sporting awards in 2018?
