The world's premier shearing and woolhandling championship takes place in Masterton, 'capital' of New Zealand's Wairarapa region.
The Golden Shears logo has become an internationally recognised trademark that symbolises both quality and excellence in the skilful art of shearing and woolhandling.
The three day event encompasses novice, junior, intermediate, senior and open shearing competitions along with junior, senior and open wool handling events and singles wool pressing competitions, as well as the coveted triathlon award.
From the dreams and inspirations of a few enthusiastic young farmers many years ago, the greatest shearing competition in the world was born.
