VICTORIA – Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has invested AU$950,000 (US$713,800) in accelerating efforts to breed out flystrike.  

The allocation of funds means the organisation has now offered up an estimated AU$9.9 million (US$7.4m) to support R&D work since 2005. 

“The breeding of more profitable naturally resistant sheep to flystrike is a core research project for AWI and we are putting more money into it,” chairman Jock Laurie told local reporters. “As the industry's Wool 2030 strategy highlighted, growers want to have confidence and tools to manage flystrike without mulesing.”
