Woolly talk at Highland Show

Wool producers have the chance to meet members and staff of the UK’s only central marketing board, the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB), to discuss prices and the BWMB’s work at the Highland Show this week.

The board’s vice-chairman Hugh Blythe, who represents southern Scotland, said: “For many farmers BWMB is simply the organisation that pays them for their wool. But from shearer training to the Campaign for Wool, BWMB is active at every level of the wool industry and through its work is helping improve the quality of fleeces delivered to depots and demand for British wool.”
