March 19, 2004 -- Roswell Wool announces May 4 and 5 as the dates for its spring 2004 wool sale with the follow-up sale taking place on May 25. The event is open to all parties interested in purchasing wool.
According to Manager Mike Corn, ?There is a full-day of activities planned. The sale will start around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday and will break for participants to enjoy an all-you-can-eat barbeque during the lunch hour. The afternoon session will run from about 1:00 until 3:30 p.m.? The second day will be shorter, concluding around noon.
All the wools offered for sale will be core tested as well as measured for length and strength. The ability for Roswell to offer a larger volume of wool for purchase has enabled it to attract international buyers. It is anticipated that wool purchased at this sale will be shipped to many different parts of the world.
Producers who are interested in getting their wool placed onto the sale bill can contact Mike Corn at 800-624-WOOL to discuss the details.
