  • Description

    Australia.

    Various shots of men shearing sheep in a farm shed. They are using electric clippers and are very fast about their business. The main shearer we see is Ivan Orchard the Champion Shearer of Central Queensland. The fleece is removed and will later be used for wool.

    CU as a hand writes up on a blackboard how many sheep each man has shorn.

    CU of Mr Orchard as he drinks a well earned pint of beer.
