Role of the Wool Broker

Role of the Wool Broker

The open cry auction system is the main method by which wool is sold in Australia, with over 85% of the annual Australian wool clip sold through the auction system. Wool brokers are the agents for woolgrowers in selling their wool, and are the auctioneers for their client’s wool. They also provide vital services to the Australian woolgrower, including farm supplies, advice, market information and market intelligence, assistance with forward selling, clip preparation, ram selection and so on.
