Beyond the Bale : Aug 07 - Sep 07
14 MERINO 200 BEYOND THE BALE An industry snapshot Throughout the years on the land, woolgrowers have taken inspiration from the great Australian Merino and from the diverse Australian landscape -- an inspiration that has been captured and displayed in a photographic competition. Rural Press, in conjunction with AWI, ran the competition during May in five Rural Press farming publications, The Land, Queensland Country Life, Stock Journal, Farm Weekly and Stock and Land. 230 entries were submitted, many capturing the romance of the industry, the beauty of our land and the success of the past 200 years. Finalists from each state have been announced. They are, clockwise from right: • Amanda Scott, NSW; • Wayne Allen, South Australia; • Amanda Manning, Western Australia; • Susan Hegarty, Queensland; and • Greg Healey, Victoria. Each finalist will travel to Canberra to participate in the industry commemoration event on 13 August at Parliament House, where the national winner will be announced. 1960 Japan and the European Common Market surpassed the UK as the world's largest purchasers of Australian wool. 1966 Australia, changing its currency from pound to dollar, proclaimed the importance of wool in the nation's history by including a portrait of the early sheep-breeder John Macarthur on the two-dollar note. 1964 Italian graphic artist Francesco Saroglia created the Woolmark logo for the International Wool Secretariat. 1951 Prosperity in the Australian wool industry during the 20th century peaked. The Korean War did much to boost the price of wool. The entire UK stockpile of 10.4 million bales was sold. 1955 Young designers Yves Matthieu Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfield won the International Wool Secretariat Award in the dress and coat categories respectively. 1963 The Australian Wool Board replaced the Australian Wool Bureau. In July, the Australian Wool Testing Authority became a division of this new organisation.
