The Australian Wool Production Forecasting Committee (AWPFC) met on Wednesday 29th April 2020 and reviewed its forecast of Australian shorn wool production for 2019/20. It also decided on its first forecast for 2020/21. The Committee revised its forecast for 2019/20 to 281 mkg greasy. This is a 6.3% decline on shorn wool production in 2018/19. It is higher than the 272 mkg greasy that the Committee forecast in November, in line with the AWTA test data to end March. The Committee’s first forecast for the 2020/21 season is that shorn wool production will decline again despite the extensive rainfall across eastern and south-eastern Australia in recent months. While wool cuts over the 2020/21 season will improve, the Committee expects that lower sheep shorn numbers will push production lower. You can see full details in the Media Release from the AWPFC.
