We provide wool measurement data on the diameter and length of wool, for example, and also offer:
Responding to the growing demand for on-farm individual animal testing, our trained operators work on-site at shearing or pre-shearing. Operating under tightly-controlled conditions, we get the measurements you need for flock improvement or objective classing with the portable OFDA2000 length-diameter instrument.
In terms of wool sales and lab-based tests, we have services covering both trading certification and greasy wool testing. These rely upon sampling that complies with the regulations of the International Wool Textile Organization (IWTO).
We can also provide laboratory fleece testing as an independent and accredited service, giving growers the data required to select animals for culling or breeding. Growers and breeders simply send in fleece samples selected from individual animals (e.g. sheep, goats, alpaca) and we turn the results around quickly and cost-effectively.
