The Australian Wool Production Forecasting Committee (AWPFC) has updated its forecast of shorn wool production for the 2020/21 season. This fourth forecast is for production to be 290 million kilograms (mkg) greasy, a 2.1% increase on the estimate of 284 mkg greasy in 2019/20 (Table 1).
The number of sheep shorn in Australia during 2020/21 is forecast to fall by 4.5% to 65.5 million.
The AWPFC’s first forecast of shorn wool production for the 2021/22 season is 305 mkg greasy, a 5.1% increase on the 2020/21 forecast because of modest increases in the number of sheep shorn (up 3.7%) and average cut per head (up 1.4%). The Committee expects that the current low sheep numbers will restrict larger increases in shorn wool production in the short term despite the favourable seasonal conditions across many wool producing regions of the country.
