Last night.

On RTÉ One’s Big Week on the Farm, which continues every night this week at 7pm.

Eight-time All-Ireland Sheep Shearing Champion Ivan Scott, from Kilmacrennan near Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, sheared a sheep in 37.9 seconds – a new world record.

Fair play, in fairness.

Big Week On The Farm.

On Big Week On The Farm we ask the children of St Laurence O’Toole primary school in Dublin what kind of animals you would find on a farm – with some very interesting answers!

Also on tonight’s show, presenters Áine Lawlor and Ella McSweeney are joined by guest co-presenter Mairead Farrell as they introduce viewers to the host farm for the week’s events – John Fagan’s lot on the beautiful shores of Lough Derravaragh in Co Westmeath.

We’ll get an insight into the secret life of the cow, live link to a pig farm in Kerry and a fish farm in Donegal, hear a hair-raising tale about cows from weather woman Evelyn Cusack and Mairead will turn her hand to some milking. And we’ll also be checking in with John Fagan as he finds himself in the middle of delivering 120 lambs over the course of the week.
