Benchmarking Australian sheep parasite control (WP499) - Longitudinal survey report

In 2004, The IPM-sheep (Integrated Parasite Management sheep) project funded by Australian Wool Innovation Ltd (AWI) conducted a large national survey to benchmark parasite control practices in sheep in Australia. This survey was largest of its kind in Australia with 2292 respondents to a questionnaire of 30 questions. In 2011 AWI and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) commissioned a follow up survey, Benchmarking Australian sheep parasite control, of which this report forms part.

The objectives of the follow up survey were to:

  • Measure change in sheep parasite control practices and attitudes between 2003 and 2011, the years surveyed in the 2004 and 2012 surveys respectively.
  • Provide a new benchmark against which to measure change in parasite control practices and attitudes into the future
  • The benchmarking Australian sheep parasite control survey of 2012 had two components:
  • A longitudinal analysis of practice change amongst sheep producers who participated in both surveys
  • A cross sectional analysis of all of the responses to the 2012 survey. This report is on the longitudinal component of the survey.
