AWI Flystrike Genomics Reference Flock
AWI has commenced a two-year project aimed at increasing the phenotypic and genomic information needed to establish a Flystrike ASBV, as well as adding data to the Merino Genomic Reference Flock.
The project aims to provide financial assistance to ram breeders collecting flystrike data on genotyped animals, so a genomically enhanced Flystrike ASBV can be established. In the short term, a Flystrike Research Breeding Value will be released, which breeders involved in the project will receive prior to the release of the ASBV.
The project is open until June 2025.
