Sheep and wool president continues

BUNGUNYA farmer Alan Rae will continue his role as president of the AgForce sheep and wool board, intent on serving another two-year term with the industry body.

The fourth-generation sheep and wool producer from the Goondiwindi area is looking to focus on continuation over the next two years.

Mr Rae said overseeing the rollout of wild dog exclusion fencing and encouraging new people the enter the industry were both high on the agenda.

"While the drought has taken its toll, the Queensland sheep and wool industry has been rebuilding in recent years with stronger commodity prices and wild dog exclusion fencing helping to restore confidence.

"Over the next two years, the AgForce Sheep and Wool Board will look to develop a blueprint for how governments, financiers and producers can work together to continue the revitalisation of the industry.”

Mr Rae said other key priorities would be increasing shearer and wool handler training opportunities and improving safety in and around the shearing shed.
