UGG Boots - Australian Farmers Favoured Boot?
Released on: October 13, 2010, 4:26 am
The popularity of the UGG Boot is increasing rapidly across
the globe, and more people than ever before are looking to purchase a
pair of their very own UGG Boots. The unseen, and somewhat unexpected
affect of this, is that the UGG Boots are
causing quite a stir for Australian Sheep Farmers as they now need to
meet the high demand levels generated by the UGG boot manufacturers.
Sheep skins were once considered to be a useless by-product when creating other wool
merchandise, but farmers now have to become accustomed to tackling the heightened
level of demands for the skins. The Sheep Farmers can now look to increase their
profits further by creating business models which are adaptable to new found levels
During the recession, sheep skins were available for purchase for as little as $1
with many farms and tanneries reported to be burning excess skins as it was not cost
effective to actively promote and distribute them. However, the issues of financial
distress are being to dissipate for most consumers meaning that they have more
disposable income and with winter fast approaching this extra income seems to be
being placed in boots, such as the UGG.
This resurgence in demand for the product has consequently led to a rise in demand
for the raw materials required to manufacture them. Australian Sheep Farmers are now
looking to find new methods of production which help to produce higher quality sheep
skins. The investment to place in these improved production styles should be easy to
come by as several reports have now placed the price of Sheepskin closer to $21.
The Australian economy can hope to benefit from even more revenue in the future with
several leading companies wishing to use the Australian sheepskins in their
products. The most prevalent of these companies is Deckers Outdoor, maker and
designer of the original UGG Boot. With increased sales of the original design and a
product portfolio which is constantly expanding to include new styles which require
sheepskin in production, sheepskins are in high demand from Deckers Outdoor.
Deckers Outdoor isn’t the only footwear producer that uses sheepskin in their
produce; Emu Boots, Bear Paw and Aussie Boots also use genuine sheepskin in their
products. The combined demand of these companies, will hopefully keep the Sheep
Farmers in a state of growth for years to come.
