Flystrike

AWI has in place a proactive, intensive and committed flystrike prevention program with long term and short term aims.

The ultimate long-term aim of the program is to reduce the reliance on mulesing. The immediate or short term aim is to provide methods to replace or refine the practice of traditional mulesing with welfare-improved practices. AWI supports all woolgrowers in their choice of best practice animal health and hygiene in flystrike control.
