Biographical history

The Australian Wool and Meat Producers' Federation was officially formed on 13 April 1939 as a federally structured body to represent Australia's woolgrowers. It was originally called the Australian Wool Producers' Federation until June 1943 when it was changed to the AWMPF. It maintained the largest membership of federal woolgrowing organisations, consisting of small graziers and sheep farmers. Its two commodity interests, wool and sheep meat, were administered by separate sub-committees. The AWMPF was amalgamated into the National Farmers Federation in 1979.
