Farmers to have their say in this year’s WoolPoll
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.
