Primaries of WA provide a range of financial services tailored to assist growers market their wool and livestock. These services relate specifically for the purchase of livestock and the short term financing often needed prior to the sale of wool. The services are as follows:

Livestock Resale Accounts (Seasonal Finance)

Clients wishing to increase their existing stock numbers or to trade livestock can arrange for the payment of purchases to be delayed until their wool and/or livestock is sold or, alternatively paid back at a maximum period of 6 months.

Shearing Advances

Shearing advances are intended to provide short to medium term finance to cover shearing costs and other carry on expenses. Primaries offer up to $250 per bale on a secured interest bearing basis.

Interest Free Reciprocal Advances

Reciprocal advances are provided only on a short term basis of up to three months from the date of the advance until the sale of the wool. The funds advanced to the grower for shearing purposes are then reciprocally lent back to Primaries once the wool has been sold.  The wool proceeds are held for same period of time the advance was outstanding. No interest is involved with this form of advance.
