Aussie wool output stays unchanged in 2014/15

As per projections of the Australian Wool Production Forecasting Committee (AWPFC), shorn wool production is estimated at 341 million kilograms for 2014-15, flat from the 2013-14 season.

“This reflects a small drop in shorn sheep numbers offset by higher average fleece weights,” Australian Wool Innovation Limited (AWIL) said in a press release.

In case of greasy wool, the production forecast for the 2014/15 season is 341 million kilograms, again the same as the 2013/14 season estimate.

AWPFC’s first projection for 2015/16 has been set at 332 million kilograms, down 2.7 per cent from 2014/15, which is a result of lower sheep numbers arising from the high sheep and lamb turn-off rates.

Committee chairman Russell Pattinson said, “There is expected to be a reduction in the number of sheep shorn this season.”

“However, this decline will be offset by an increase in average fleece weights across Australia due to good production conditions in several regions,” he observed.

These regions include Southern New South Wales, Northern South Australia and a few regions in Victoria.

AWTA wool test data for 2014/15 shows a reduction in wool volumes of 17.5 microns and finer, and an increase in 18-19 micron, 22-23 micron and above, in the first nine months of the season.

“This has resulted in a 0.2 micron increase in the mean fibre diameter for Australia so far this season,” the press release concluded by saying. (AR)
