On the 4th of November, a technical workshop organised by the Diputación de Badajoz was held being focussed on the value chain of merino wool. The event took place in the emblematic building “El Hospital” owned by the Diputación and which has recently been refurbished.


The workshop programme included two round tables incorporating presentations and debate. The first was entitled “The wool value chain and its recovery: a commitment to strengthening the territory” in which Roberto Ballesteros (Innogestiona Ambiental), Gonzalo Palomo (University of Extremadura/Coop. Actyva), Camino Limia (Ganaderia Joaquín Ortiz/Merino Spain) and Antonio Granero (National Association of Merino Cattle Breeders) took part. The second round table entitled “Uses of wool, revaluation of waste and marketing” included presentations by Eva Shuster (Plan Lana), José Milara (Bioconstrucción Brizna), Miriam Pinto (Lanaland Project) and Almudena Sánchez (Dehesa Lana).


The presentation developed by “Innogestiona Ambiental” dealt with the “Iberian Merino wool value chain“, based on a report developed within the Interreg ProDehesa/Montado project already completed.
