Please contact the Department of Agriculture to make your protest heard. Write a polite letter to email, post or fax, voicing your opposition at this cruel barbaric treatment, asking for the Dept to stop promoting mulesing.

This gives the farmer an opportunity to take a closer look at each individual animal who may also have other problems at the time. Crutching entails shearing the wool from around the whole breech area starting from about two inches above the base of the tail and including the tail and down the back and sides of both back legs. The pizzle area, under the belly is shorn and the whole face area around the eyes, ears horns and top of the head wool is removed.

Use of the visual scoring system, such as for breech cover and wrinkle, developed by Australian Wool Innovation is an example of this type of breeding.
The second generation involves calculating estimated breeding values. Australian Sheep Breeding Values have been available since for traits such as breech wrinkle and cover, to help wool producers select their ram purchases. Now, research and development is focusing on analysis of the sheep genome, in conjunction with data on breech characteristics and flystrike incidence.
This analysis should identify genomic selection tools for improving flystrike resistance in merinos, which would improve the accuracy of selection and lead to faster genetic gain.
This project has only recently begun as DNA chip technology has become more available, and so it is likely to be several years before new selection tools are available.
The use of clips as an alternative to mulesing is no longer in development. Several other approaches are in the early stages of proof of concept for replacing mulesing, including:. Liquid nitrogen , which is used in human medicine to remove warts and small skin tumours, is being investigated for its potential as a mulesing alternative. Application of liquid nitrogen damages skin cells through the freezing and thawing action. The theory is that this skin damage and subsequent healing will provide an increase in bare area and reduction in wrinkle.
Initial work suggests that the application of liquid nitrogen has the potential to reduce breech wrinkle by 1. Preliminary studies by CSIRO have shown that, although the application of liquid nitrogen appears to cause some initial discomfort in sheep, the overall effect is very mild.
Further development work is progressing, aimed at improving the infrastructure for application and the rate of throughput. Contact Through These Eyes Records. Streaming and Download help. Report this album or account. Through These Eyes Records.

This risk depends on local conditions and the particular type of sheep.
