Trust Account

“You can trust the broker with the trust account.”

Once your wool is sold, buyers pay the proceeds directly into the WISS TRUST ACCOUNT.

This ensures that your wool funds are quarantined from the general funds of the company. It is an important point when considering the style of a trust account.


Woolgrowers Independent Selling Services offer to growers a unique OML ( Objectively Matched Interlots) system for their 1&2 bale lines of Merino FLC, PCS & BLS.

This allows for wools to be appraised and matched together building to a 4 Bale line or larger and following the sale paying growers an equity payment depending on individual test results.

All Crossbred and Carding wools are subjectively matched and in both cases the auction room prices are completely transparent allowing the wool producer to follow the progress of their smaller lines.

Woolgrowers Independent Selling Services takes great pride in providing the trade with quality Interlots which in turn are strongly supported at sale time.

Auction Selling

Through its membership NATIONAL COUNCIL OF WOOL SELLING BROKERS and the AUSTRALIAN WOOL EXCHANGE we sell at regular Melbourne sales.

Before sale you will be contacted by us with a market appraisal price (valuation) for all lots in the sale. The appraisal price is the last known average price for that type of wool. We do not attempt to adjust this price so that you can give us informed selling instructions. You may reserve any lots or request us to sell at market value on the day. There is no charge for passed in or re-offered lots.
