Bully boys?

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: This old mutt hears that there is some discontent in the wool sector at the tactics being used by the meat industry to rejuvenate wool’s prospects.

This comes on the back of news that a meat industry dominated group has been formed to implement the recommendations of the Government-backed Wool Industry Project Action Group.

The Hound hears that the new group, led by Silver Fern Farms chair Rob Hewett and funded by four meat companies and MPI, has ruffled a few feathers in the wool sector by the “arrogant and bully-boy” way it has forced its way to front any wool sector reform.

As one wool man told the Hound: “It’s not as if the meat industry has a long and proud history in revolutionising itself. So, it’s a bit rich them now shouting the odds at how the wool industry should be run.”
