New Zealander Matt Smith has set a new world record for sheep shearing, having sheared 731 sheep in a 9 hour marathon session.
The previous 9 hour record of 721 was set by Rodney Sutton in 2007.
In 2012, prior to his latest world record, Smith set a record for the most sheep sheared in eight hours, by shearing 578 sheep.
Trefranck Farm was host to the record attempt, which an international audience watched via a live camera link.
The attempt began at 5am, going through five separate groups of sheep until 5pm.
A similar record for lamb shearing is to be attempted by Irish man Ivan Scott this coming Friday.
