The breakdown of wool markets in Northern Europe has led to a steady decrease of prices for raw wool. Once highly sought after and valuable, wool has now become more of a troublesome and uneconomic by-product of meat production throughout the region. The high quality fine wool still in demand is imported from other continents, notably Australasia, at prices with which European producers cannot compete.

Many European farmers have thus said goodbye to the old double-purpose concept of wool and mutton and have embraced the low cost, high quality mutton only breeds. The Nolana Network is a forum for the exchange of ideas and experience between those involved in the production of such sheep. If you'd like to get in touch or add your site to this page then please email us.
