Shearing and Woolhandling

From shearing and woolhandling, to clip preparation and market transparency, wool harvesting is central to the Australian wool industry. Best practise in shearing sheds results in a high quality wool clip and the health and wellbeing of both professionals and sheep.

We work with industry organisations and contractors and invest in regional coaching programs which are fundamental to education and the adoption of best practice. Since 2015, we have facilitated close to 4000 shearer and wool handler training days to 17,000 people, delivered through AWI-funded programs.

In this section
Training Resources
Providing free training for novice, improver and professional shearers and woolhandlers we work to promote best practise in wool harvesting through our regional coaching program and extensive training resources.
Clip Preparation
Preparing your wool clip is an important task that affects the quality of the wool clip and ultimately the final price receive.
Market Transparency
The National Wool Declaration (NWD) creates transparency and choice in the marketplace for retailers and suppliers wanting information on welfare.
Biosecurity
The Australian wool industry had a robust strategy to minimise the potential trade impacts on the industry if an outbreak of an Emergency Animal Disease was to occur in Australia.
Competitions and Support
These competitions promote excellence and professionalism within the Australian shearing industry and encourage young people to join the industry.
