New wool packer machine to be on view at Sheep event

A new on-farm wool packing machine will be on display on the British Wool Marketing Board's stand at the Sheep Event (Malvern, Tuesday August 3rd) - and sheep producers will be able to see the equipment in action when it's used in the event's shearing section.

“This will be a good opportunity for sheep producers to take a close look at the new on-farm packing machine and to see it actually working with newly shorn fleeces,” said Gareth Jones the Wool Board's producer relations manager.

“The British Wool Marketing Board has been working closely with the manufacture over the design of the packer which can also be used to compact farm plastic into bales. The packer will be of considerable benefit to large individual flocks or to groups of producers who want to use one co-operatively.

“It will certainly make a big difference to moving larger amounts of wool more economically by providing compressed, easily handled bales.”

This year has seen the extension of the intermediate depot system by the Wool Board as a means of saving transport costs by encouraging producers to deliver wool to their nearest grading or intermediate depot.

“We will have all the details on the stand to explain to producers how they can avoid transport costs for their clip and welcome any enquiries about this new system of delivery which has proved extremely successful this year” Mr Jones said.

The Wool Board remains committed to its on-going shearing training programme across the UK and Colin MacGregor, - the Wool Board's shearing training manager – will be at the Sheep Event where he is part of the judging team adjudicating the “Shepherd of the Year award.

“We've had another very big turnout at all shearing training days held this year. Sheep shearing is a valuable skill that many young people are now realising can open up many opportunities both here in the UK and across the world” Mr MacGregor says.
