The wool market is in RECESS now for 3 weeks for a well earned rest in what has been a tumultuous first half of the season. Better than expected seasonal conditions have caused unprecedented delays with shearing and transport of wool to the market. We can only hope that 2022 delivers more prosperous times for all sectors of the industry.
