The British Wool payment system
Following the grading process, British Wool sells wool on behalf of its members in a series of auctions over a 12 month period.
Payments to sheep farmers are made at the end of the year after British Wool has sold the wool on behalf of its members. Payments reflect both the weight and quality of wool delivered and are based on the average price achieved for each wool type throughout the season.
The payment system has been developed to allow British Wool to operate in any market situation and use its collective strength to ensure its members receive the true market value for their wool.
