Improved seasonal conditions but low sheep numbers limit recovery in shorn wool production

There is no translation available.

The Australian Wool Production Forecasting Committee’s fourth forecast of shorn wool production in 2019/20 is 281 mkg greasy. This is a 6.3% decline on the 300 mkg estimate for 2018/19 as lowsheep numbers and the enduring impact of drought continue to constrain production.

The Committee’s first forecast for 2020/21 is for shorn wool production to be 276 mkg greasy, a fallof 1.6% compared with the current season. Low sheep numbers, opportunistic cropping in mixedfarming regions and uncertainty surrounding wool prices are expected to contribute to a slowrecovery in shorn wool production despite the favourable seasonal outlook in many wool production areas.
