Thursday, 10 August 2023
An experienced shearer is now a British record holder after shearing 706 lambs in eight hours.
Herefordshire born and raised Steve Rowberry, who now runs his own farm in Chapel Lawn, south Shropshire, has been shearing since he was 20.
The 34-year-old embarked on his attempt to make an eight hour lamb shearing record at Abbeydore in Herefordshire’s Golden Valley on August 4, aiming to set a new British record and try to beat the world record of 754 lambs held by Jack Fagan.
