THE Poowong-Loch Cricket Club Sheep
Shearing Day was a great success, with a
record-breaking 230 sheep shorn, drenched
and deloused during the annual fundraiser.
Local shearers and cricketers pitched in
to help on the day at Ray and Sandra Hill’s
shearing shed at Poowong.
Alex Dixon and Colin Knox organised the
14th annual day, and collected about 100
sheep from those who required transport.
Alex said it was an outstanding day for the
cricket club and was well supported by peo-
ple around Korumburra, Loch, Nyora and
“A special thanks to the shearers and to
our sponsors, Elders at Korumburra and
Rodwell’s Livestock at Leongatha, who sup-

“It was a good experience for many people.

sheep owners to see the sheep shorn.
“To see the shearers and cricketers handle
the livestock in a really good way, see the
shearing process and wool classing is a good
“We’re yet to sell the wool and we’ll sell it
over next couple of weeks.”
Cricketers break shearing record
The Poowong-Loch Cricket Club’s annual Sheep Shearing Day saw local shearers and
cricketers help shear a record-breaking 230 sheep recently.
