Farmers stave off wool sales

  • January 23rd, 2009

I had to check the Southland Times after today’s ThomsonBrookers Business News Alert on the Southland farmer response to recent parlous wool prices (around $3 per kilo – the lowest for 14 years).

According to ThomsonBrookers the Southlanders are  "stockpiling hundreds of barrels of wool".  Salting it down for the duration no doubt.

The newspaper reassured me that they are still using bales. Does urban NZ know the difference, or was it just spellcheck?
