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
