Winter coats will be shorn off the sheep at the Ambury Regional Park this Saturday and Sunday as long as the weather is dry. People are encouraged to go along and watch the shearing which starts about 7am and goes in two-hour runs with half-hour breaks for morning and afternoon tea and an hour for lunch. The team of professional shear- ers, a rousie and presser, will be helped by park staff. They are expected to fnish work about 4.30pm. Depending on their experi- ence, shearers can handle 20-40 sheep an hour while the wool is sorted and pressed by the wool handlers. Sheep are shorn in mid-Novem- ber for comfort through the long hot summer months. If the lead-up to shearing day is too wet, work will be postponed. To check whether it’s going ahead, phone the Auckland Council on 366-2160. Ambury Regional Park, on the Manukau Harbour shore at Man- gere, is a working farm hosting thousands of school children each year for farm-based environmental education programmes.
