USDA Offers Rare Wool Report

May 20, 2024

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service offered a rare wool sale report this past week. Prices aren’t usually available due to a lack of reported sales and confidentiality concerns.

Domestic wool trading had 505,723 lbs. of clean and 517,629 lbs. of greasy wool confirmed trades reported this week. Prices reflect trades FOB warehouse in original bag or square pack, bellies out, some graded, and 76 mm or longer. No allowance made for coring, freight or handling fees at the warehouse level to reflect net grower prices.

Wools shorter than 75 mm typically discounted .10-.20 clean. Classed and skirted wools usually trade at a .10-.20 premium to original bag prices.
