WeanerSafe data reporting
The WeanerSafe project was terminated sixteen months early by the then newly elected Queensland State Government and the B.AHE.0055 contract with MLA and AWI cancelled. Collection of data sets for the anthelmintic resistance survey had been completed but critically, for the Safe Grazing trial only baseline observations had been recorded. The late onset of rains during the second summer season further reduced the data collection period to about 4 weeks. Information collected up to February 2013 is the subject of this report. Project objectives The project has two sections, an anthelmintic resistance survey (Part 1) conducted on 20 farms across southern Queensland where H. contortus is endemic and the cause of weaner mortalities, and a Safe Grazing (time-controlled rotational grazing) trial (Part 2) conducted on sheep-only enterprises where possible to reduce dependence on anthelmintics for worm control in weaner sheep over hot wet summers. The aim was to demonstrate these technologies on-farm and provide support during the adoption phase.
