Primary Wool farmer meetings

Primary Wool farmer meetings

The new farmer-owned national wool procurement and marketing organisation, Primary Wool Cooperative Ltd, is holding a series of farmer meetings around the South Island this month.

The informal meetings are aimed at introducing staff and directors of the company to woolgrowers, and explaining the Cooperative's objectives and direction, and the benefits of becoming a shareholder.

The meeting schedule is as follows: Ranfurly: The Ranfurly Lion - Monday February 10 Balclutha: Rosebank Lodge - Tuesday February 11 Gore: Croydon Lodge - Wednesday February 12 Winton: Commercial Hotel - Thursday February 13 Kurow: Kurow Hotel - Monday February 17 Fairlie: Gladstone Hotel - Tuesday February 18 Methven: Blue Pub - Wednesday February 19 Banks Peninsula: Hilltop Tavern - Thursday February 20 Greta Valley: Greta Valley Tavern - Monday February 24 Seddon: Starborough Tavern - Tuesday February 25

All these meetings are being held at 8pm in the evening. As well, daylight meetings are being held in the Nelson Area on Wednesday February 26 at: St Arnaud: Speargrass woolshed - 10am Tapawera: Island Valley Farm woolshed - 2pm

Primary Wool Cooperative Ltd was formed in November through the merger of two of New Zealand's largest wool cooperatives, the wool division of Combined Rural Traders (CRT Primary Wools) based in Christchurch, and East Coast Wool Cooperative Ltd of Dannevirke.

It services the full cross-section of New Zealand wool growers and will handle more than 140,000 bales of wool in its first year, making it the second largest procurer of wool in New Zealand, and the largest wool cooperative by a significant margin.
