Wool production follows a similar pattern to sheep numbers, dropping severely in the last twenty years. Production reached a national high in 1990 at 1 million tonnes, then dropped rapidly to 353 thousand tonnes by 2010. A similar trend appears across all states with production falling significantly after 1990.
