Shearing & Wool Handling

Excitement is building at the Prince of Wales Showgrounds in anticipation of the National & Bendigo Shearing & Wool Handling Championships.

Sports Shear Australia in conjunction with the Bendigo Agricultural Show Society are hosting the championships at the Bendigo Exhibition Centre. There is an action packed 2-day program where Australia’s and New Zealand’s most talented shearers and wool handlers compete to see who can shear and handle the wool quickest and cleanest.

The program commences at 9 am on both days and fierce competition is expected as the competitors compete for over $8000 in prize money.

Visitors can expect excitement and an electric atmosphere as they watch talented men and women compete.

A six stand board will be in operation, kindly donated by Shear Outback.
