Leader Products & AWI to produce anti-flystrike clips

21
Oct '08
Anti-flystrike clips will be commercially available to Australia's woolgrowers in time for the 2009 marking season.

An agreement to produce the plastic devices was signed this week between Australian Wool Innovation and prominent Australian agricultural products supplier, Leader Products.

According to the Chairman of Australian Wool Innovation, Mr Brian van Rooyen, the commercial availability of clips gives woolgrowers a tangible alternative to the practice of mulesing.

"I'm very heartened that we will be able to get this product to market almost two years ahead of the industry's 2010 deadline for the phase out of mulesing," Mr van Rooyen said.

"The signing of the license to produce the clips should give woolgrowers the confidence and certainty they have been looking for.

"Leader Products is an outstanding Australian company with a strong balance sheet and excellent distribution channels which should enable the clips to be accessible to every woolgrower who wants to use them."

The Managing Director of Leader Products, Bruce Dumbrell said his company's decision to purchase the license to produce the clips was as much an ethical decision as it was a commercial one.

"I'm very pleased that we have gained the license to produce the clips," Mr Dumbrell said.

"Woolgrowers need to know that there are alternatives to mulesing and I'm pleased that Leader Products can be part of the solution."

He said production of the plastic clips should see them available to woolgrowers in time for lamb marking in the middle of next year.

Clips have been trialed at selected locations across Australia. A study of their performance released back in July demonstrated that after 90 days clips came out winners over mulesing in the following animal management areas.

1. Significantly less pain and stress for clipped lambs compared with mulesed lambs, and;
2. Greater, faster live body weight gains for clipped lambs compared with mulesed lambs.

Moreover, clips worked as well as mulesing in flystrike prevention when used with complementary animal husbandry practices such as jetting.
