Bloch & Behrens has direct relationships with manufacturers around the world, many of whom are seeking supply and price certainty. As a result, we can offer growers fixed price forward contracts while the wool is growing on the sheep’s back. 

We auction significant quantities of wool throughout the wool selling season at New Zealand's two key auction houses, based in Napier and Christchurch. We drive efficiency by maintaining good working relationships with testing houses, exporters, transporters, scours, dumpers, and shipping agencies.
