Abstract

WOOLPLAN is the Australian scheme designed to meet the performance recording needs of ram breeders of the non-pedigreed wool breeds of sheep. The scheme was launched in March, 1987, and a review of its implementation within the wool industry of Australia is now timely.
This paper discusses the extension (promotional and advisory) campaigns supporting the implementation of WOOLPLAN, the achievements in the 2 to 3 years of operation, and the improvements that could be made.
