NCWSBA has prepared this updated edition of Instructions to Judges and Stewards and Scale of Points for Fleece Judging to assist judges and stewards in the subjective judging of fleeces at agricultural shows in Australia. The instructions and the revised scale of points for fleece judging have been updated to reflect current-day fleece weights and other measures for the Australian wool industry. These instructions and scale of points are designed to reflect, from a breeding perspective, the most desirable characteristics of wool judged subjectively and which are commercially relevant. The aim to ensure a consistent basis for fleece judging around Australia to provide information to exhibitors, wool producers and the industry.
The schedule provides subjective assessment criteria which the NCWSBA considers provides the suitable basis for fleece judging competitions around Australia.
NCWSBA will undertake further work in 2019 with the intention of releasing a further update in the second half of 2019.
