While we are in Stanley we will core test all our bales of wool. The purpose of wool coring is to find the micron and yield of your wool. We will lot our bales into groups of the same grade wool for coring. All wool that I have graded as A will be cored together, all B together etc. This will be a hard days work for Christopher and Shaun because they all have to be cored by hand as the bales are too heavy for the automatic corer. This entails manually pushing a hollow spike into each bale to extract a sample of wool, depending on how many bales are in a lot determines how many samples need to be taken from each bale. The smaller the lot the more samples that have to be taken from each bale. Once this is completed the samples will be DHL'd to New Zealand, I will then complete all the necessary paperwork and ship the bales in a container to Prague in Germany.
