Woolpoll

WoolPoll 2024

WoolPoll is woolgrowers’ opportunity to have their say on the level of collective investment in research, development (R&D) and marketing to take advantage of the opportunities and address the threats faced by the Australian wool industry.

WHAT IS WOOLPOLL?

  • WoolPoll is a poll of eligible wool levy payers, conducted every three years, to determine the levy rate paid to AWI for industry R&D and marketing. Currently the levy rate is 1.5% (of the sale price woolgrowers receive for their shorn greasy wool).
  • At WoolPoll, eligible woolgrowers are asked to consider up to five levy rate options. They can vote for one or more levy rates in order of preference.
  • The levy rate that receives the highest number of votes will be paid by all woolgrowers for the next three years (2025/26 – 2027/28).  The levy rate takes effect from 1 July 2025.

If you have paid $100 or more in wool levies over the previous three financial years, you will be eligible to vote in WoolPoll. For each $100 of levy paid, you are entitled to one vote.

Your voting entitlement is determined from records of your wool sales. You will be notified of your voting entitlement in August. If you believe your voting entitlement has been miscalculated, you will be able to contact a voter assistance hotline. The cut-off date for this will be 6 September.
