Health and Welfare Committee

In 2014 WoolProducers established the WPA Health and Welfare Advisory Committee and extended an invitation to other wool bodies, including Australian Wool Growers Association, Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders, Australian Superfine Wool Growers Association. This move ensures that there is representation and input across the entire wool industry in the expenditure of the health and welfare levy administered by Animal Health Australia. The Sheep, Camelid and Goat Veterinarians also has observer status on this Committee to provide technical advice.
