    She Shearers

    After arriving in Aberystwyth, you will get the opportunity to network, catch up with old friends and meet new, and hear from a line-up of inspirational female speakers from New Zealand – part of the ‘she’s shearing’ brigade – who have blown away stereotypes and sexism in the traditionally male world of sheep shearing.

    For shearing legends Jills Angus Burney and Emily Welch, personal bests have been world shearing records! Encouraged to quit shearing in her 50s by her orthopaedic consultant, Jills found a second career as a High Court barrister and solicitor, but she still can’t keep away from ‘Golden Shears’, the world’s premier shearing and wool handling championship.

    Emily Welch is the current world record holder for shearing 648 lambs in nine hours (overtaking Jills’ 2007 record). It’s going to make interesting listening hearing how this mother of three small children also finds time to compete and run her own shearing contracting company. The trio will be joined by central Otago shearer and wool handler Pagan Karauria. Pagan returned to ‘Golden Shears’ last year following a horrific car accident that tragically killed two of her friends and left her with severe injuries. Now shearing again and a mentor to other hopeful young female shearers, her message will be one of overcoming adversity through sheer determination!
