Had my last year's payment last week.
£184 for about 500 fleeces and some lambs wool.
Exlanas are being looked on more favourably as I sort for tupping.
Post edited due to not having this year payment until next year 🤦🏻‍♂️
3,000kg. 1100 ewe fleeces and 300 lambs.
500 exlana’s and rising!

🤔 You have twice as many fleeces as me (and over twice the weight!)... yet I got £30 more than you

Wool trade is shyte at the moment but you've bigger issues if you've done that poor. No wonder you're switching to shedders
Sorry the money was for 2020 clip, 3,000 went in this year, last year was 2,500 kg.

Haulage of £250 on last years clip, 306 kg gave a loss of -£4, and 2250kg organic gave £115 after haulage was deducted, leaving £111 for the pair for 2,500 kg.

You surely would be better sorting your own haulage at that? I guess that those of us who live near a depot are better off than we perhaps realised. Suddenly a couple of gallons of derv and an hour for the trip doesn’t feel so bad.

I notice that they have announced a removal of some of the haulage charges for this year and onwards, which hopefully will be a help for those that are a bit further away.

2.5 hours each way minimum - just looked at google maps. For 60 bags that’s a fair few journeys

I’ve never put down how much money earnt off the wool as I’m not sure in 30 years we ever actually covered the costs of shearing/workers and thats without accounting for loss of growth rates on fat lambs going that week and the week after etc… always just put it down as a fly treatment exercise as it’s about the same cost as Clikzin would be anyway..

I was left with £161 for 1,400kgs... (It was £1,700 for the 1,400kgs the year previous).

I'm not sure if yours being Organic alters things? but it does seem very low for your clip

I get an organic premium bonus some point through the year which last year the bonus was treble the wool amount 🤦🏻‍♂️
Only the last 3-4 years we have had any more for organic wool though..

Haulage of £250 obviously takes a chunk of the already sh!te amount paid
