Shearing comps cut short
The coronavirus response has spelled an early end of season for shearing competitions.
Doug Laing Shearing Sports New Zealand says events this weekend in Warkworth, Methven, Waitomo and Marlborough have been cancelled, and only the Waimarino Shears Raetihi on Saturday is still going ahead.
The name and contact details for all those present will be recorded.
Organisers of the New Zealand Shears in Te Kuiti in early April and the Royal Easter Show in Auckland are considering their situations.
