Last month, saw the release of yet another report, which purports to have all the answers for revitalising the ailing wool sector. Grandly titled: Vision and Action for New Zealand’s Wool Sector – this latest report was commissioned by Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor and developed by the Wool Industry Project Action Group (PAG).
While the report has not called for a grower levy, some think it will be only a matter of time before one is proposed.
However, many woolgrowers reckon such a step would do nothing for wool’s fortunes, but plenty for those with their hands out.
“Why is it that people want to use other people’s money all the time to find a solution and not risk their own?” one critic asks.
