Guidelines for joining and providing a forecast of your production
Step 1 By clicking on the above link you will be taken to a ‘Sign Up’ and ‘Log In’ page where you can begin the short process of becoming a ‘member’ of the supply network
Step 2 Once you have entered your name, email address and password you will be taken to the ‘Registration’ page and asked for some details about your farm (trading name, location, contact details, choice of broker etc). Don’t forget to click SAVE button at the bottom left of the page.
Step 3 Once you have provided your contact details click on the Mob 1 tab to provide brief details of you planned wool production. Click SAVE at bottom of screen.
There are 6 Mob tabs you can use to provide details of all the wool you would like to include on the register. Don’t forget to click SAVE for each mob. If you have more than six mobs you may need to consolidate some of these for forecasting purposes.
Inputting the mob details is very quick as the information required only has to be approximate and most field are set up as multiple choice drop down boxes. Choose the nearest option to the likely outcome of your wool.
Only fill in details for the number of mobs you would like to register.
Remember it is a forecast so don’t be too concerned about accuracy as you can as you can update the individual mob information at any time.
