Farm­ers to have their say in this year’s WoolPoll

Central Queensland News - - RURAL WEEKLY -

EV­ERY three years, Aus­tralian wool­grow­ers set the fu­ture fund­ing level of their wool re­search, de­vel­op­ment and mar­ket­ing body through WoolPoll.

Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions re­quire AWI to con­sult a panel of wool­grow­ers to as­sist in run­ning the poll.

In Novem­ber 2017, AWI ap­pointed South Aus­tralian wool­grower Syd­ney Lawrie to chair the 2018 WoolPoll panel.

“Based on ad­vice of the 2015 panel and AWI board, I asked grower rep­re­sen­ta­tive groups to put for­ward nom­i­nees who would re­flect the di­ver­sity of the Aus­tralian wool in­dus­try. I asked for male and fe­male nom­i­nees; young grow­ers and the not-so-young; and im­por­tantly, those who are ac­tively en­gaged in in­dus­try net­works,” Mr Lawrie said. AWI is fo­cused on ways it can im­prove in the de­liv­ery of WoolPoll.
