Wool farmers' body recommends 2% levy

Sep '09
Members of the South Australian Farmers Federation have recommended the federation members to vote for the current 2 percent levy at the forthcoming Woolpoll, where wool growers of the country vote on what percentage of their wool income will fund research, development and marketing.

The wool committees of the other state farmer organizations also will hold a meeting in coming weeks to make a recommendation in this regard. The organizations have not publicly voiced their opinion, but in all probability, will also recommend a vote in favour of the current 2 percent levy to their members.

It would mean an end of Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and its research, marketing and development programs, if the wool growers will not vote for current 2 percent levy. AWI is the nation's wool research and marketing body.

State farmer groups are encouraging the wool growers to vote in Woolpoll and sending across the message that, not taking part in Woolpoll means, allowing others to take a decision on their behalf.

In this regard, a decision, taken earlier in the month by a minority vote, the New Zealand wool growers, decided to stop paying levy for research and development activities, surprised the Australian Wool Industry.
