|Title:||Within and across flock genetic relationships for breech flystrike resistance indicator traits||Contributor(s):||Brown, Daniel (author); Swan, Andrew (author); Gill, Sam (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8884||Abstract:||Introduction: • Breech fly strike is a major problem - Mulesing has been used as a control method - Being phased out due to welfare concerns • Breeding for resistance through indicator traits - Wrinkle, wool cover and colour, dags and fleece rot • Require correlations between indicator and production traits • Across v within flock effects also an issue ... Importance of Visual Traits: • Main goal to increase breech strike resistance • Other goals - Easy care sheep - Reduced urine stain - Reduced crutching - Reduced reliance on chemicals - Improved wool quality||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Sheep CRC Research Conference: Transforming Wool, Meat & the Sheep that produce them, Adelaide, Australia, 20th - 21st October, 2010||Conference Details:||Sheep CRC Research Conference: Transforming Wool, Meat & the Sheep that produce them, Adelaide, Australia, 20th - 21st October, 2010||Source of Publication:||Presented at the Sheep CRC Conference||Publisher:||Sheep CRC website||Place of Publication:||Online||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.sheepcrc.org.au/files/pages/news-and-events/presentations-from-past-events/sheep-crc-conference-2010/Brown-D-SheepCRC-Conference-V3.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 119
