This year’s wool check, for Mallee.

Apr 9, 2019 | 21:43 1 Wife is following a forum and the wool people are mad. Wool values are a quarter the cost of shearing.

One person got a dollar a head in wool revenue, cost to shear is 5 to 5.60 per head.

That is why we raise hair sheep, mate. Reply With Quote

Went to our local farm fair last weekend.
Had a wool section were studs and local farmers can enter fleeces. I had intnetions but cut off date for entries was the week we started shearing.

Average price for farmers fleeces was around the $75 per head winning fleece i think was $98.

Best stud fleece was $185 i think. Around 12 kilograms Reply With Quote
