Get a premium price for your wool by participating in the wool pool! The wool pool provides buyers with more uniform packed wool thus making it easier for grading and processing (works very similar to the graded livestock sales). The wool pool is conducted by the TN Sheep and Wool Producers and past prices have been as high as $0.98/lb!
The wool pool is a volunteer effort, therefore, when you bring your wool, plan to stay at least long enough to help process your wool. This helps keep costs down and helps you learn the process.
UK Sheep Department will also be hosting a wool grading clinic throughout the day! The clinic will give you great tips on how to make more money from your wool.
