South West wool produces urge to give full support to Board

Support the board - that was the message sent to producers from a recent meeting of the South West Regional Committee of the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB).

The meeting, held at Axminster Carpets, was the first regional meeting of the year prior to the new 2009 wool shearing season.

Members, representing registered producers from the south west discussed a range of topics raised by the committee including wool pricing, the Board's costs and the operation of the Board's depots at Liskeard and South Molton.

Ian Hartley, BWMB Chief Executive Officer, attended the meeting to discuss these issues and update the committee on the Board's activities as well as prices for the coming season and marketing and promotion of wool.

Committee members - all local wool producers – sent a message to south west sheep producers to fully support to the Board.

Local farmer and committee chairman Alan Marshall said: “Achieving the best possible returns for producers will always be a priority of the Board but if sheep farmers had no Board in place to market their wool the consequences for the sheep sector would be unthinkable.

“We urge all farmers who produce wool to continue their strong support for the Board.

“We have two excellent depots at Liskeard and South Molton and it's vital, in the current climate, where we see sheep numbers in decline, that the Board gets every kilo of wool that's produced to achieve the best possible returns for farmers and to keep as keep costs down to a minimum.”

South West member of the British Wool Marketing Board Brian Dallyn added: “The Board's role is to act as selling agent for British sheep farmers and to achieve the best possible price for their wool by providing an established and stable marketing structure.

“If sheep producers had to find a buyer for their wool every year we'd all be far worse off. It's essential that we all stick together to ensure the best possible returns for the excellent wool produced in the UK.

“It's the Board's priority, with its depot structure, to maintain the service it provides for all wool producers, whether large or small throughout the West Country.”
