Sheep producers urge to support BWMB as shearing season starts

As the summer shearing season gets underway amid heightened confidence in the sheep sector, members of the British Wool Marketing Board's central region committee have urged sheep farmers to “support the Board.”

At its meeting held at Central Wool Growers, Stamford, Lincolnshire, committee members representing sheep producers in the Board's central region, discussed a range of topics including wool pricing, the Wool Board's costs and the operation of the Stamford depot.

British Wool Marketing Board Chairman Frank Langrish and the Board's Chief Executive officer Ian Hartley attended the meeting to update the committee on wool prices for the coming season as well as the marketing and promotion of wool.

The committee was also given information on the new 'Extra4Wool' scheme which has been introduced by CWG to provide wool producers with a discount system – based on the amount of wool offered to CWG – on products purchased through Central Wool Growers.

Peak District farmer and committee Chairman Richard Cottrill of Bamford, Sheffield said achieving the best possible returns for producers would always be a priority of the British Wool Marketing 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 to support the board.

“We've excellent facilities at the Central Wool Growers depot at Stamford and it's vital - particularly in the current climate where sheep numbers are in decline - that the Board handles the maximum volume of wool possible to achieve the best returns for producers and to keep costs to a minimum.'

Shropshire farmer Nigel Williams, who represents the Central Region on the British Wool Marketing Board added: “The Board's role is to act as selling agent for British sheep farmers and to achieve the best price for their wool through 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 vital that we stick together. Through the Board's depot structure and its intermediate collection centres, the Board is committed to maintaining the service it provides for all wool producers, whether large or small, throughout the central region'”
