The country buyer (often the shearer) offers the convenience of immediate disposal of the wool and rapid settlement. Local delivery points are also a consideration. Both these methods of sale are often based on average quality wool. PROD Challenges to Wool Production and Quality Wool Production focuses on the characteristics of Merino wool which influence its value, such as fleece weight, average fibre diameter, staple strength, staple length, colour, vegetable matter and style. The impact of genetics, nutrition, environment, physiology and management on these wool characteristics is examined. The interactions between.

Although this is an extreme temperature, it.

    Managing Wool Quality. Wool quality is very dependent on genetics. Breed for heavier fleece weights, finer and cleaner fibre. Have flock health and nutrition management plans. Have feeders or feeding programs that keep fleeces clean. Handle all forages and bedding in a manner that reduces fleece contamination. Have lots of clean bedding. Domestic sheep differ from their wild progenitors and among themselves in conformation, quantity and quality of fleece, colour, size, milk production, and other characteristics. Most breeds of domesticated sheep produce wool, while a few produce only hair, and wild sheep grow a combination of wool and hair.
