Initiative 84

Cutting chemical reliance in controlling sheep parasites (B.AHE.0072)

A shift towards producing meat sheep in Western Australia and the need to reduce reliance on chemicals to control parasites makes the implementation of an integrated approach to worm control a high priority.

Research undertaken by Western Australian Agriculture Authority

What are we doing?

This project will validate integrated parasite management (IPM) procedures tested elsewhere in Australia and in wool sheep, while equipping livestock advisors with the knowledge and confidence to facilitate the wider adoption of IPM, also in Western Australia.
