BWMB will be staging Wool Clinic at NSA event

At next month’s NSA Sheep 2012 (Wednesday 4th July) to be held at the Three Counties Show Ground in Malvern, visitors will have the opportuniy to gain a detailed understanding of the work done on behalf of UK sheep farmers by the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB).

The BWMB, one of the event sponsors, will display information on the latest wool prices whilst illustrating the various parts of the organisation’s work including; marketing and promotion, and the valuable work it does training new shearers explains Malcolm Corbett, BWMB’s Chairman.  Examples of this fast and furious shearing action can be seen in the Open and YFC Shearing competitions which will be held in the Shearing Shed on the day.

The BWMB will be staging a Wool Clinic on its stand in Wye Hall 4 throughout the day, giving presentations to producers on improving wool clip presentation and quality.  Additionally, wool from a variety of sheep breeds will be judged by Stephen Ballinger, BWMB’s Regional Manager at the show’s fleece competition.

“Last season’s buoyant wool market means that net wool payments are set to rise for the fourth year in succession, by an average of 22p/kg, resulting in a significant increase of the Average Producer Clip Value to £1.24/kg for the 2011 season, compared to £1.02/kg in 2010” said Mr Corbett.  These payments are after all operating costs have been deducted and excluding VAT.

Wool auction prices have risen over the last few years and it is hoped these high prices will be maintained throughout the 2012 selling season explained Mr Corbett.  “It should be noted that we should not become complacent due to the overall economic outlook and the slower growth in China in recent months”.

The BWMB collects, grades and markets wool for all UK sheep farmers, and provides a high quality service to all producers regardless of the type or amount of wool produced., Mr Corbett says farmers should recognise that it is the BWMB’s unique involvement at all levels of the supply chain which, together with its competitive auction system, puts it in such a strong position to be able to help the UK sheep industry extract the maximum value for its wool.

A key element to BWMB’s promotional work is its involvement in the Campaign for Wool (CfW) which will also be highlighted at the show.  Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to see the CfW’s iconic Choose WOOL display, which has been designed to show the versatility and creativity of wool in a modern and thought provoking way.  As part of their combined work, the BWMB are determined to continue to make consumers aware of the quality of the wool British Farmers produce.
