Sheep meats are in peak demand, wool at around 1525c/kg making the total article a very worthwhile industry.

“Breed More Merino Ewes is the latest campaign from the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders and is gathering momentum down south as it would in Queensland but for the latest continuing dry period.  All we have to do is add water,” Mr Wilson said.

“Nevertheless I can only encourage clients and wool growers generally to position themselves as best they can to take advantage of a growth industry when it does rain,” he added.

“The world is screaming out for protein and our Merino wool has to be regarded as the world’s premium fibre.”

At the Royal Adelaide Ram sale this year, Wilgunya purchased a Greenfield ram for $31,000.

“He is potentially the best sire I have seen in some years because he is a genuine wool cutter that Queensland badly needs,” Mr Wilson said.

“There are too many gun-barrel straight sheep out there that can’t cut any quantity of wool when coming up into our harsh environment.”
