Australian wool market takes positive turn with three consecutive weeks of increases.
International certification body Allergy Standards Limited has officially recognised bedding products made from Merino wool as asthma and allergy friendly.
The top price ram made $16,000 but Trent Carter, Wallaloo Merinos, was most pleased about the depth of the sale, with an average of $2731.
Despite the federal government granting NZ shearers short-term visas to enter Australia, only a handful have accepted the offer.
The current wool price downturn isn't the worst, or even the second, third or fourth-worst, in the last 100 years.
