Shearing judges come from all walks of life
NZ FARMER – by Jill Galloway – “Marcel Thwaites gave up being a shearer 15 years ago and now judges the country’s top shearers.
“We judge on the shearing board, and out the back to see what ridges and cuts a sheep might have,” says Thwaites. “The shearer is judged on the number of second cuts they make as well.””
