A SMALL selection of wool from an increasing number of WA growers is set to be used for a new luxury wool brand as part of an arrangement brokered by the export division of growing local agribusiness, Westcoast Wool & Livestock.
WESTCOAST Wool & Livestock is continuing to invest in the future, welcoming another industry stalwart to its team. Phil Barber has joined the company as a Livestock Representative and is looking forward to supporting eastern wheatbelt producers based from Corrigin. With more than 54 years of experience working in WA’s agricultural industry, Phil will also be acting as a mentor to some of the company’s junior team members.
IN a move to further strengthen an already impressive team, Westcoast Wool & Livestock has appointed well-respected and experienced livestock representative Steve Harris. Steve joins the company as a Livestock Representative for the Williams and district area, bringing with him more than 30 years of industry experience.
PROMINENT former WA agribusiness and livestock identity Gerald Wetherall has returned to the rural industry with Westcoast Wool & Livestock, appointed to the position of State Livestock Manager with the burgeoning, privately-owned local company.
Westcoast Wool & Livestock is a keen sponsor and supporter of rural and regional communities and one of its latest efforts centres around helping students from Boyup Brook District High School (BBDHS) to tour the nation’s capital.
WESTCOAST Wool & Livestock continues to ensure it provides the latest, accurate market intelligence to growers, with the company sending a strong team to the recent International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO) Congress held in Hong Kong.
