UPDATE: WOOLGROWERS have voted for a continuation of the 2 per cent wool levy.But Australian Wool Innovation won't release details of what the vote in favour of the 2 per cent levy option was or any of the other four levy options
Those details according to AWI chief executive Stuart McCullough would be revealed at AWI's annual general meeting in Sydney this Friday.
AWI claimed that the full details of the vote would be released only after they had been presented to the AWI board as per due process.
Although AWI was withholding the full results it was happy to report that the latest WoolPoll vote attracted a record participation rate with 60.94 per cent of all possible woolgrower votes cast.
Mr McCullough thanked woolgrowers for getting behind the poll.
"This is a very high level of return for a voluntary vote. WoolPoll 2012 has set a new benchmark for our industry, with highest ever outcome for both votes and voters," he added.
Mr McCullough said the outcome gave AWI the opportunity to continue the progress made in recent years across all areas of the organisation but emphasised how levies would always be managed responsibly and prudently to deliver outcomes for all growers.
