Time to cast your vote for wool’s future
Voting for WoolPoll 2021 is open!
WoolPoll is open to ALL woolgrowers … Merino producers, mixed farmers or those who only run sheep as seasons allow. If you’ve paid at least $100 in wool levies over the last three years, you’re eligible to vote in WoolPoll 2021.
Held every three years, WoolPoll is a voluntary vote of all wool levy payers through which the industry decides on its levy rate for investment in the research, development and marketing activities conducted on behalf of woolgrowers by Australian Wool Innovation (AWI).
Growers are being given up to five options of levy rate to support, and can vote for one or more levy rates in order of preference through the independent poll. The options growers can vote on as their preferred levy rate are 0 per cent, 1 per cent, 1.5 per cent, 2 per cent and 2.5 per cent.
This year’s WoolPoll will feature a supplementary question which will ask woolgrowers whether they want a five-year WoolPoll cycle, or if they want to remain with the current three-year voting cycle.
Voting can be conducted either online at www.woolpoll.com.au or via email, fax or post.
