The only shearing app you will ever need!

WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION!

STOP CLOCK WATCHING -

FOCUS ON SHEARING FAST!

 

 
Shear Pace is the mobile performance app for sheep shearers.
 
It will improve your ability to focus on your shearing, giving you better technique and greater speed.
 
It's a tally counter, plus it's a clock and pace setter all in one, all on your phone.
 
Simply press the screen for your tally and time, and it will tell you how close you are to your preset goals.  
 
 
Shear Pace: 
think about your shearing not your speed.

Why should I use Shear Pace?

 

INCREASE YOUR TALLIES

"It increases motivation, which increases tallies, which increases income" - Rowland Smith

 

"It's worth about 2-6 sheep per run for me - that's up to 24 sheep per day" - Tristan McKay

 

"I think it will increase my tallies by about 4 sheep per run - about 16 sheep per day" - Rowland Smith

 

"While unfit, it was worth between one and four sheep per run for me, I went from 59-64 sheep in one run just using the app, I was unfit but it kept me on track to get my tallies" - Ginge Ryan

See above what Rowland Smith thinks will be the benefits of Shear Pace for shearers

Until now, shearers have had to plan in their head how many sheep they wanted to shear each day, and then work out how many seconds each sheep needed to take, how many per quarter, how many per run... then using the clock, work out whether the tally is up, down or bang on schedule.

Thinking about your tally takes up valuable brain space, which could be used for technique analysis, which, handily can increase speed.  

 

 

So, I created the Shear Pace App, which does all the maths for you.  It means that you can concentrate on where each blow is going, rather than worrying about whether you are on target for your tally. 

INCREASE ENJOYMENT

Shearers were asked what their enjoyment level was shearing a run using their tally counter, and then again after using the app for a run.  

 

All shearers increased their enjoyment, some by over 80% (that's from a zero in the first run!).

INCREASE MOTIVATION

 

In testing, motivation from the first run where tally counters were used, to the second run, where the Shear Pace app was used was increased for all shearers by up to 90%.

Shearers were asked to rate their motivation when shearing with a tally counter and clock over one run, and then after using the Shear Pace app - motivation was increased in every instance, and in one shearer, from 0/10 motivation, to 8.5/10 motivation!

"It increases motivation, which increases tallies, which increases income" - Rowland Smith

 How the app makes you work so you can acheive your goal tally 

SET AND REACH DAILY GOALS

 

Look at your sheep, decide on your goal tally, tap in the day length (with the Shed Version, run length with the free version), and Shear Pace will tell you how fast you need to go.  It keeps track of your speed for every sheep, leaving you free to think about your technique, and not working out how many you did in the last quarter hour while you are still shearing.  

See the video above to find out how Shear Pace can help you reach your goals.

REVIEW AND IMPROVE

View your run and your day that night with the Shed Version, or see your day, your week and years in the Tally Book or calendar with the Ringer Subscription ($4.99 NZD/month). Make notes on the shed and the sheep in your day summary.  Review your income and check against your pay sheet.
