Join the shearing gang

Though nearly 5pm, Harry’s shearing gang digs deep to work through the last ewes on Waikura.

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

It’s one of the most remote dry-stock stations in New Zealand that stretches most of the length of the Waikura Valley. The gang is paid per sheep, so there’s little time for rest.
