Sheep shearing demo @ 10.30am

June 30, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

A highlight of the show – a chance to see our professional sheep shearer in action!

Sam Taylor will be shearing New Zealand Romney sheep from Alan Atkey’s farm on Stenbury Down. Sam lives on the Isle of Wight, but his sheep shearing takes him around the world. He averages at one sheep per minute. His record is shearing 464 sheep in 8 hours!


The National Farmers’ Union sponsor the livestock section.  Cedar Vets sponsor the Livestock Demonstration Area.
This section is also supported by Green, Roberts & Butler, the Carisbrooke Vets; and the Isle of Wight Goat Club.
