The objective of this component is to increase market return from wool and mohair systems for livestock producers through improved quality of the fibre while at the same time stimulating a niche cottage industry for wool and mohair tapestry products, and providing a market outlet for unproductive animals that need to be removed from the rangeland.  Value Chain  challenges  will  be  addressed  in  three  subcomponents:  a)  tackling  value  chain improvements,  b)  supporting  cottage  industry  and  niche  market  development  and  c) promotion of livestock auctions and district slabs.

The component is divided into three sub components:

1)Value Chain based Enterprise Enhancement

2) Cottage Industry and Niche Market Development

3) Promotion of Livestock Auctions and District Slaughter Slabs
