Wool clearance rates and grower stocks

Pass in and withdrawal rates have risen at auction as prices have fallen. A consequence of this is the increase in grower stocks in store, which is something the supply chain thinks about in terms of supply. Developing an idea of grower stocks, short of simply counting them in store, is notoriously tricky. This article takes a look at this part of supply.

Wool preparation categories

It has been a decade since the Sheep’s Back to Mill was updated. The Sheep’s Back to Mill publication is a record of the cost of harvesting, testing selling and shipping greasy wool in Australia to overseas mills. One of the components of this publication is the proportion of the wool clip which passes through rehandles/bulk class facilities. This article takes a look at wool preparation in the clip, which in turns determines how much wool passes through rehandling facilities.

AWI revenue set to crash

With greasy wool supply under downward pressure due to dry conditions and wool prices under downward pressure due to weaker demand, revenue for AWI which is primarily dependent upon wool levy income and government contributions (matched to R&D activities and capped at 0.5% of the gross value of the national wool clip) is set to shrink. This shrinkage is compounded by a lower wool levy rate, reduced from 2% to 1.5%. This article puts some numbers to the projected fall in revenue.
