BWMB to guide visitors at Devon County Show

British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB) staff and Board Members will be on hand at this month's Devon County Show to give visitors a thorough explanation of the work BWMB does on behalf of UK farmers.

With a multi-faceted role in the wool supply chain it is easy for farmers and others to think that all BWMB does is run depots where wool is delivered, says BWMB Wool Marketing Manager Stephen Spencer.

"The BWMB stand at Devon County Show will allow visitors to gain a full understanding of all the roles that BWMB undertakes within the wool industry, from grading and selling wool, through to wool promotion and work with the Campaign for Wool to promote wool on a global stage," he explains.

"The BWMB is the only producer organisation in the UK which is active at every level of the supply chain, providing training to novice shearers and helping maximise the price farmers receive for their wool."

Unfortunately, the continuing uncertainties in the world economy mean wool prices have been lower than expected over the recent selling season, but an increase in demand in the early part of this year has helped to offset that and BWMB is hopeful of continuing price improvements, he adds.

Mr Spencer will also be judging the Wool on the Hoof and Fleece competitions at Devon County Show, using his experience as a wool grader to find the best fleeces from a varied selection of breeds on display.

Also on hand at the event will be BWMB English South Western Board Member Brian Dallyn who will be able to answer producers' questions and queries on BWMB matters of all types.

Mr Dallyn says all producers are welcome to visit the stand and learn more about BWMB's work on their behalf. "For many producers once they've delivered their wool to the depot that's the last time they think about it. But there is much they can do to help BWMB achieve the best possible price for their wool when it comes to auction."

“It is BWMB’s competitive auction system which enables it to maximise returns, but this is also dependent on wool being delivered to BWMB in as good a condition as possible.

“No one else offers the level of service or competitive edge that the BWMB does or is able to provide the level of valuable feedback on wool quality which our highly trained graders can,” he added.

Novice and experienced shearers will also be able to speak to their regional shearing coordinator to discuss the shearing courses available locally to help them learn a new skill or hone their technique.
