Latest Record Attempt Results

  • Saturday 8th September 2018

    Steven Mudford set a new World Record shearing 373 merino wethers in 8 hours at Parkdale SRS Merino Stud, Dubbo, NSW, Australia surpassing Dave Grant's 356 set back in 2007 at Hughenden, Queensland, Australia.
    A very good effort by Steven considering drought conditions at Dubbo caused postponement of the attempt by over three months, enabling the wool weight to be reached.
    Referees on the day were Robert McLaren (Convener) N Z, Ralph Blue, Grant Borchardt, Mike Henderson, Australia.

    Leon Samuels attempt on the 8 hour strong wool ewe record at Argyle Station, Waikaia, New Zealand was aborted at 11.00 a.m. (lunch time) with Leon 19 sheep behind the required tally.
    Rowland Smith’s tally of 644 set in July 2017 remains the 8 hour strong wool ewe record.
