The event also included a tour of the wool grading facility, CCWG Livestock Supplies store and the Real Wool Shop.

"I just wanted to thank-you for hosting the Wool Handling Seminar today.

For all the times I've been there, it was my first time seeing the sorting process and touring the facility."
