An Industry Reminder
The current industry weight limit is 220 kg per bale. This limit will change to 200 kg commencing 1st of July 2016.
Please speak to your contractors and work with them to assist in this industry regulation. This is because over half of our clip is destined for China and much of that wool is being sent off shore unscoured. The machinery used to compress 3 bales into one high density bale is unable to handle the current limit. CP Wool is then required to reduce offending bales back to the required limit in stores which is a very time consuming and labour intensive process.
Thank you for your support with this.
