Important Industry Reminder: Wool Contamination

October 25, 2019

You may have heard recently two lines of wool, totaling 50 bales, were rejected by the Hawkes Bay Wool Scour because there were ‘brands’ throughout the clip.

Following this event, at the most recent Napier wool sale, there were often NO bids on lines that had any sign of spray raddle in them.

It’s important to remove ALL wool showing signs of sheep marking products – regardless of colour or make of the product. 

It’s become apparent that some products that claim to be scourable are in fact proving not be, causing serious problems within our industry.

PLEASE speak with your contractors prior to shearing and make it clear that these marked/branded wools need to be kept separate from all lines.
