World sheep shearing record broken in Waikato

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:50 pm on 17 December 2019

A Canadian woman, now living in the Waikato, has broken the world 'women's solo eight-hour' record by shearing 510 lambs in a day.

That's just three more than the previous record, which has stood since 2012. Pauline Bolay explains how she did it and what her motivation was.
