Young shearer Josh Talbot, who lost his arm in a car accident is this year's guest speaker and an inspiration to all who work in the shearing industry.

Wine auction and wine sales will again be a feature to the day with some proceeds assisting charities and shearing events around Parndana.

For further details contact Sean Gaskin or Annemarie Larcombe.

The shearing competition at the 2019 Parndana Show meanwhile was a chance to recognise legend KI shearer Rodger Borgmeyer. See the pics below or read more here.
