At meetings in Denver, Colo. last week, the American Sheep Industry Association?s (ASI) Wool Council finalized the Wool Trust Budget for FY 2003-2004 and recommended approval by the ASI board of directors.
Preliminary work began by hearing proposal updates from industry associations awarded funding through the wool outreach program in FY 2002-2003. Wool program updates were also presented by companies working with ASI on market research and promotion, quality improvement, information, wool producer planning, U.S. wool strategy and program development. The wool foundation and administration were also approved.
