Pullin Shearing Limited (2005 /2006 season) utilised 231 employees composed of 115 shearers and 116 woolhandlers and pressers.

Study objectives were to investigate the labour force characteristics defining significance in terms of days and hours worked, age demographics, work life stages, sector description and breakdowns, the business manpower strategies required and wider New Zealand shearing industry implications.en
