Sheep development trend to touch its peak

Jun '10
Argentine sheep manufacturing differs from the remaining world in two aspects. First of all, the numbers of sheep here are not decreasing and secondly, they revere the weight of wool in their ventures.

Even with the radical decline encountered during earlier decades, for over the last six years, sheep population in the country is on a rise, touching the figure of 16 million in 2008.

Sebastian Villagara, while addressing delegates, at the 8th World Merino Conference in France said that, the escalation was attributable to several reasons, like global enhancement in the prices of wool, affirmative domestic currency policies and taking up of various production technologies.

Villagara said that, during the spell, the wool cultivators in Argentine profited, on account of improvement in the international wool prices and immense depreciation of local currency, during the end of 2001. This significantly elevated the export industries in the country, including wool.

A national law, meant for recuperation of sheep, was also officially declared, during the same period. The National Sheep Recovery Law advanced state funds for various purposes like regaining of stocks, improving farm infrastructure, feeding production units, breeding plans, formulation of comprehensive sheep health programs, AI projects, semen imports and central progeny investigation.

Not only this, the legislation did sponsor the National Wool Quality Program, 'Prolana', which was meant to support and award, appropriate shearing, skirting, baling and testing of wool. It is believed that, the sheep development movement is likely to have attained its optimum height in Argentina.
