More information: For the latest publications and information, visit www.wool.com/flystrike The ‘Managing Breech Flystrike’ manual is designed to help woolgrowers further reduce their flock’s flystrike risk and develop more effective flystrike control plans. The manual can be used in conjunction with the FlyBoss website (www. flyboss.org.au). There are a wide range of management and breeding options currently in use. Different combinations of the available tools will suit producers in different enterprises and regions with varying risk of flystrike incidence. The preferred combination of tools and strategies needs to fit current risks, markets and other farm operations but it is also important that producers continually review their plan to ensure that it can be effective and fits in well with the future markets and seasonal variability. The manual includes coverage of management options, such as the strategic use of chemicals, shearing and crutching; breech modification; scouring and worm control; and breeding for breech strike resistance.
