QUEENSLAND – Australian wool growers are petitioning against proposed changes to the country’s National Wool Declaration, which could introduce new definitions to mobs on which alternative methods to mulesing have been used.

The Australian Wool Exchange (AWEX) is seeking industry feedback on potential revisions to the 2019 National Wool Declaration. Notably, the wool authority wants to instil a mulesing status of NM (non-mulesed) that recognises whether an alternative has (NM2) or hasn’t (NM1) been used.

Queensland Merino breeder Mark Murphy and New South Wales breeder Norm Smith have launched a petition calling for AWEX to scrap these changes, with Murphy insisting: “This is a black and white issue – we do not need to muddy the waters.”
