Tools to assist wool growers & retailers

Jan '08
At the end of 2007 Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) released three tools to assist growers and retailers in the progress towards the phasing-out of conventional mulesing practices by 2010.

The tools available include an extensive blowfly strike management CD, a declaration form for the sale of unmulesed wool (that is, wool sourced from growers that are no longer mulesing) and a swing tag available for retailers.

The CD is available from the AWI website and offers a practical approach to woolgrowers in minimising the occurrence and severity of blowfly strike. All AWI shareholders will also receive a copy with the forthcoming edition of Beyond the Bale.

“The key objective of the CD is to help growers better understand the factors that lead to blowfly strike and is intended to assist woolgrowers in implementing management plans,” an AWI spokesperson said.

The declaration form allows woolgrowers to state that the practice of mulesing is no longer being undertaken. This form is now available from brokers and agents.

The swing tag, which is available free of charge, was created for retailers who wish to inform their customers that wool used in a particular product has been sourced from an Australian woolgrower who is no longer undertaking mulesing.

It is important to note that AWI does not check, test or verify any bales of wool to determine whether the wool has been sourced from Australian woolgrowers that no longer mules.

Retailers must use their own endeavours to ensure that when they place this swing tag on a garment they are providing accurate information to the customer.

Subject to statutory warranties to the contrary, AWI will not accept any liability whatsoever arising from the use of these three tools (the CD, the woolgrower declaration and the swing-tag). Any and all users of these three tools must rely on their own enquiries as to the representations made on or in these 3 products.
