Non-mulesed premiums for selected fine Merino types

Sellers in the greasy market view it in terms of individual lot results, while the buy side views the market from the perspective of consignment averages, with individual lot prices constantly changing to enable required consignment averages to be met. That constant changing makes analysing lot sales data a messy process. Given that caveat, this article takes a look at premiums for selected fine wool (“Italian” for want of a better term) types in recent years.

Drought patterns in wool specifications

Wool market commentary appears to mention wool quality or selection a lot at present. The implication is that poorer wool quality makes it harder for exporters to construct their required mill consignments, with more poor quality wool spilling into lower value contracts. This article takes a look at some of the key measured wool qualities in the Australian greasy clip within a drought perspective.

Weekly Wool Forwards for week ending 15th March 2019

The forwards market picked up ever so slightly from last week with two more trades, but it is still somewhat muted when you look at the last few years for March. It is interesting to see large price differentials in the same Micron category in relatively short time intervals in the forwards market; this could indicate some panic in a falling market or in confidence that the market will continue to fall.

Chinese GDP – what does it tell us about wool prices?

Traditionally economic growth in the cold, rich countries of the northern hemisphere has been a key driving force behind wool prices. This has changed with the movement of processing en mass to China, the reported development of the Chinese domestic market for wool and the decline in wool production. This article looks at the recent relationship between wool price and GDP.

Non-mulesed volumes continue to trend higher

A recent article in Sheep Central discussed a German documentary on mulesing in the Australian flock and noted that there seemed some confusion about the proportions of the clip which is declared to have used pain relief. This article looks at the proportions in the Australian clip declared ceased/non-mulesed and to have used pain relief to February.

Weekly Wool Forwards for week ending 8th March 2019

The forwards market dropped off to measly pickings this week with only four trades agreed, and one of those was for coarse wool. This is in stark contrast to what we saw through February and even in comparison to March forwards figures over the last three years.
