One of the purposes of the Federation is to provide a network around the world for members to exchange information relating to all facets of Merino breeding and the use of Merino wool, meat and other related products.

Conferences are held every four years and facilitate access to scientists, researchers, technical service providers and breeders in each host country. The latest technology and advances being made to maintain a progressive and profitable industry are highlighted and/or displayed for the benefit of all members.  Pre- and post-conference tours provide an opportunity to visit a variety of farms as well as universities and cultural centres to gain an understanding of local environments.
