With many of the summer days heat hitting over 45degrees consecutively, the main shearing at Keri-Keri this year was long & hot.
Fred Lowry’s shearing team (Shear-Off) pushed on every day regardless though and it was always a welcome time when the end of the day arrived.
All sheep on the property were shorn. Below these photos is a summary of the wool cut and wool sale results
