Flystrike Program Overview

Breech Flystrike Causal Web

During a review of breech flystrike research, a team of flystrike experts were asked to identify the risk factors for breech flystrike and their interactions with the other risk factors.  This work led to the development, by Ausvet Pty Ltd, of the Causal Web of Ovine Breech Flystrike in Australia.

Further information on the Flystrike Program and its Progress is available here.
