Wool Improvement Project

As part of the Provincial Livestock Strategy, the Department had identified wool improvement as an important area of focus in agricultural related products, especially, given its export market opportunities.

The Department will invest R39.5 million over a period of 3 years for construction of shearing sheds, renovation of existing sheds, purchasing of shearing equipment, equipping all shearing sheds with dip-tanks and establishment of cultivated pasture. The implementation of this programme will have a positive overall impact in the profitability and sustainability of wool farming by providing world-class production technology and skills to black African wool farmers in KwaZulu-Natal.
