ALL the action was at the Bartlett family's Traprock property Dunblane, where superfine Merino wethers were being shorn.

Stanthorpe shearers James Douglas, Bill Hindmarsh and Peter Hiscock had the task of harvesting the 17-18 micron wool produced on the Yuraraba district property, between Warwick and Inglewood.

The high quality clip will be sold through a future Elders catalogue. Superfine fleece wools continue to generate strong values on an otherwise fluctuating market.
