Shearers attempt to shave 2,500 sheep in 24 hours at French competition

Sheep shearers tried to shear more than 2,000 sheep in 24 hours. This is the ‘24 Heures de la Tonte’, or ‘24 Hours of Clipping’ competition in France. It started at 6 p.m. local time on June 8. Two teams of 3 shearers compete to see who can gather the most wool in one day. They also aim to set a world record in team sheep shearing. They aim to shave 2,500 sheep, which means about 50 seconds to shear each sheep.
