Regional farmer groups are encouraged to apply to host a series of grower updates being rolled out by Australian Wool Innovation (AWI).

The AWI Wool Clip events will update woolgrowers on the outcomes of AWI investments across the company. It is an opportunity for producers to hear from a range of speakers on relevant topics.

In all, 13 Wool Clip events will be held across Australia between April and August, and AWI is inviting industry organisations such as state farming organisations, brokers and grower groups to run an AWI Wool Clip in their area.

AWI Chief Executive Officer, Stuart McCullough, says by partnering with local groups, each event can be targeted to meet the needs of the audience.

The AWI Wool Clip events allow us to communicate the outcomes of our R&D and marketing investments directly with growers. AWI looks forward to partnering with a number of organisations to deliver the information local growers are looking for,” he said.

In applying, organisations can choose any combination from the following topics:

Keeping flies lice and worms under control Profitable pastures in any environment
Professional shearing and handling of quality wool clips AWI wool market outlook
Labour saving ideas for woolgrowers Marketing Australian wool
Managing the impacts of wild dogs, rabbits and foxes AWI global business development

Profitable and practical Merino management Profitability of Merino enterprises

The 13 AWI Wool Clip events will run from April to August and be split between the states, with three each in New South Wales and Western Australia, two in Victoria, Queensland, and South Australia and one in Tasmania.

AWI will provide the partnering organisation with a range of support for each event, including; catering, promotions, speakers and printing.
