The Sheep CRC will hold a mini conference on September 5 as a part of the Australian Wool Industries Secretariat’s (AWIS) Wool Week in Melbourne, with the theme ‘What’s new for wool?’ Sheep CRC chief executive officer Professor James Rowe said it was the first time the Sheep CRC had held a separate ‘mini conference’ during Wool Week.

“The half-day conference is open to all and we are keen for as many growers and industry leaders as possible come along to hear about exciting developments in wool quality from Sheep CRC researchers,” said Prof. Rowe.

“Updates on different projects will include a presentation on the CRC’s work in producing wool fabrics resistant to photo yellowing, which is critical in producing wool products able to compete with cotton and synthetics in markets where white and pastel colours are required.

“There will also be updates on developments in objective measurement of comfort and handle and specifications for comfort and the latest on the wool ComfortMeter which has been making national headlines for its ability to measure next to skin wearability of wool fabrics.

“The mini conference will also cover progress made in the area of genetics and genomics and genetic gain in wool production systems. This is a key component of the mini-conference as it covers questions related to wool production systems and the increasingly important balance between wool and prime lamb production that has implications for future supply and productivity gain”
