What People Are Saying

The WoolQ eSpeci is really easy to use. I can see how a digital record of all my specis will enable me to view my wool and better understand my farm’s performance.
Woolgrower
Neil Jackson, WA

We trialled the WoolQ eSpeci in our shed during February and we can see clear efficiencies not only within shed operations but also the communication flows between ourselves and our brokers during shearing time.

Farm Manager
Matt Crozier, NSW
I love how it keeps things organised and helps prevent manual errors. Digitising the paper speci is a really good thing not just for current wool classers but also for the next generation.
Master Classer
Raelene Laidlaw, VIC
The WoolQ eSpeci should help reduce some of the errors you could have as well as help keep track of bales in the shed and what's left on the truck
Master Classer
Dan Cummins, NSW
It’s really easy to use and I can see how quick things can get when each entry only needs a few taps.
Presser
