Plans to extensively increase wool output
Sep '10
Plans for extensive wool production are being framed out in Rwanda,. Some imported sheep have been taken to the Higher Institute of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry (ISAE) for a comprehensive study, after which they will be handed over to the farmers.

The country also intends to import cashmere goats as there is a potential in this trade and, hence, making efforts in this direction could prove helpful for the country.

In this regard, the government is trying to get in touch with dealers in animal wool production of India. Sourcing woolly animals from foreign countries would assist farmers in a broader way, since; wool can be acquired without animal slaughtering.

At present, there are around 200 Merino sheep in ISAE under trial. The Govt considers that there is need to impart knowledge to the farmers on how to shear the wool off the sheep as it is farmers' substantial source of income.

Wool accounts for around 3 percent of world's overall fibre production and plays a vital role in many countries' economy. Also, it offers livelihood to a number of citizens. Australia leads world's wool market, followed by New Zealand.
