Shear Exmoor
Sunday 29 May 2011 (starts 12 noon)
Wheddon Cross playing field, Exmoor, Somerset.

Shear Exmoor is a sheep-shearing competition for charity, with fun thrown in, to create a great event for family. 

  • Don’t blink when they do the high speed shearing!
  • Be amazed by the precision of the Blade shearing!

Shearing is a skillful job – and Exmoor has an abundance of talented shearers. Organisers want to show locals and visitors what Exmoor has to offer. 

Shear Exmoor will raise funds for a local charity CLOWNS, who provide learning and entertainment opportunities all over Exmoor for young children and the local Young Farmers Club.

The competition

Starting at 12 noon – there are 7 different classes including Open, Intermediate, Ladies, Veterans, Young Farmers Junior and Senior and Blade, plus a fun Team Shear event.
