New Zealand farmers have shared their shearing knowledge with more than 100 Mongolian herders during a five week tour of the country. It was part of the Share Mongolia Programme where four Mongolian herders spent three months working in shearing gangs throughout New Zealand to sharpen their skills. They ended up taking that skill back to Mongolia to train others. Then this year 12 farmers from throughout New Zealand split up into three groups to deliver more training to the Mongolian herders. Taranaki Farmer Rebecca Alexander was part of the team who travelled to Mongolia and joins Mark Leishman on Round Up.
