Welsh sheep producers expect higher prices

Welsh sheep producers can expect higher prices for their wool this season but they were urged to continue to support the British Wool Marketing Board.

That was the message sent to sheep farmers by members of the Board's two Welsh Regional Committees – representing the North and South of the Principality - when they met in Talyllyn, near Tywyn this week.

North Wales Regional Committee Chairman Bedwyr Jones and South Wales Regional Committee Chairman Iwan Price-Jones issued a joint statement after the meeting as the sheep shearing season gets underway.

“The higher prices that will be paid to producers this year are hopefully a sign that returns from wool are on the increase – and we believe this is a trend that will continue into next year.

“But it's essential for sheep farmers to maintain their support for the British Wool Marketing Board. The more wool the Board handles the better it is for producers in terms of maintaining a stable marketing structure and keeping down costs.

“The Board's payment and auction system for selling wool remains the best possible way to achieve the highest returns for producers. Without the auction system we would not have had the increase in price this year. The more wool handled by the Board means it can make the most from the current positive trends underpinning the world wool market.”
