SHEEP

The health and productivity of wool sheep is crucial to the Australian wool industry.

We invest in on-farm research and development to deliver new knowledge to woolgrowers and support the adoption of innovation to increase the profitability and sustainability of growing wool. Since 2001, AWI has invested more than AU$74.5 million into research and development that focuses on the health and welfare of the Australian flock. Partnering with universities, industry bodies, government departments and research institutions we develop scientifically-based and proven management practices and innovations for woolgrowers to adopt.

In this section
Health and Welfare
We invest in the development of new technologies and information to support woolgrowers in their adoption of best practice management to improve the health and welfare of their wool sheep.
