  • Wool centralisation call

    In its submission to Australian Wool Innovation's independently commissioned Wool Selling Systems Review, WAFarmers said it made practical sense to centralise and amalgamate the existing selling centres at one primary selling centre, based in Melbourne. WAFarmers said its submission was based on a declining national flock and wool clip, coupled with the declining number of sale lots presented through the Fremantle selling centre. "The savings made by buyers and brokers as a direct result of this consolidation must be passed back to wool producers," the WAFarmers submission said.

"Since about 60 percent of all buyers of gold are from the Asia/Pacific region, most of the buyers are buying it not in local currencies, but in terms of U.S. dollars," she said.
