SHEARINGUK 2024 SEASON 19 🇬🇧
My name is Robert and I have been working with livestock for many years now. I have specialised in sheep for nearly two decades, having gained shearing awards from both Sparsholt College in Winchester and the British Wool Marketing Board. When I am shearing I always work to the highest standards and take great care to keep the sheep as comfortable as possible, ensuring they remain stress-free throughout the process. I have also been involved in the breeding and rearing of sheep and have kept up-to-date with the latest shepherding and veterinary practices and techniques. I am passionate about the welfare of sheep and I always take the time to make sure that the animals I work with are healthy and happy.
The equipment I use allows for shearing in a variety of environments, from small flocks to medium farms. With this setup, I am ready to tackle any job. The Lister Nexus is ideal for shearing large flocks of sheep, with its three-speed motor allowing for a variety of speeds, from fast shearing to more delicate work. The 12-volt machine is perfect for those who need to shear in remote paddocks or fields, as it runs off a car battery and is portable. Finally, the battery powered machine is ideal for those with just a few sheep, as it is fully portable and can be used anywhere. With this setup, I am ready to tackle any job, from small farms to medium size flocks of sheep.
The sheep shearing technique that I use is known as the Bowen method, developed in New Zealand by the famous Bowen brothers, Godfrey and Ivan. Godfrey in particular is a legend in shearing, having set a world record in 1953 when he sheared 456 sheep in nine hours.
