Beyond the Bale : September 2018
MESSAGE FROM YOUR WOOLPOLL PANEL Sydney Lawrie, SA “People are showing a lot more interest in WoolPoll 2018, especially the mixed farmers I’ve spoken to, because wool prices and sheep prices are so good...and that’s making them think about how their WoolPoll money will be spent to improve the industry.” Richard Keniry, NSW “Treat (the) WoolPoll vote like an investor...There are plenty of people now investing in new sheepyards and sheds, and so my question to them is - how much do they want to invest in the industry for the future?” Rob Ingram, NSW “Not voting in WoolPoll impacts directly on the bottom line of what is spent on the industry and the quality of the work. Will you criticise the industry and what it does and where it’s going, or will you vote to have a say?” Brenton Lush, SA “We’re working with AWI to ensure WoolPoll isn’t Merino-centric and that there’s a voice for growers of 25-30 micron wools.” Candice Roberts, Qld “Even if it’s your parents who vote, start the conversation with your family and get involved and contribute to the future of your industry.” John Hassell, WA “The voting period comes as some growers turn their attention to cropping and harvest time – it’s easy to jump on your phone when you’re out and about and vote.” Steve Harrison, Vic “It’s taken a long time to get to the point where we’re looking to increase flock numbers and employ a worker, but it’s been a tremendous 12-18 months for wool prices...There’s no better time for us to decide the future of our industry.” Ed Storey, NSW “Vote but don’t get caught up in politics... Ours is one of the only rural industries where we get to vote every three years on how much of our wool income is spent on R&D and marketing.” 66 UPFRONT IT’S YOUR CHOICE
