The Australian Wool Production Forecasting Committee forecasts that shorn wool production for 2015/16 will decline by 4.3% to 332 mkg. This reflects a 3.7% fall in shorn sheep numbers, a result of the continued high turn-off of sheep and lambs in 2014/15, while average fleece weights are expected to be 0.7% lower than in 2014/15.
The Committee estimated that shorn wool production for 2014/15 was 347 mkg, up by 1.8% from 2013/14. This is the result of higher fleece weights in 2014/15 more than offsetting a 1.3% decline in shorn sheep numbers.
