What will the webinar cover?

Dr John Webb Ware of the Mackinnon Project University of Melbourne is one of the most respected sheep consultants in Australia. John will take you through the recent and upcoming changes to mulesing and if you have thought about ceasing mulesing, John will walk you through what to expect and how to manage an unmulesed flock; what are the pitfalls and how to overcome them.

The Mulesing procedure remains one of the most effective permanent measure you can undertake to reduce the risk of breech strike in sheep. There are however significant changes occurring:

Mandatory Pain Relief
The uptake of pain relief for mulesing has been high since the release of readily accessible and effective products.

In Victoria from the 1st of July you must use pain relief when mulesing sheep. This webinar will cover the new regulations, when do I need to use pain relief, what products are available and what do I have to do to comply.

Ceasing Mulesing
There are price signals and demand now in the market for certain grades of wool from sheep that haven’t been mulesed.

There are however significant management challenges in running unmulesed sheep in the medium to high rainfall zones of Australia
