Bloodspotting and inverted dressing
During dressing on inverted dressing lines, surface blood spots and streaks can occur on the hindquarters of ovine carcases and financially impact the industry. These two blemishes can be reduced, however, by two practices: efficient bleeding and use of adequate lead-up work before mechanical pulling of the pelt.
While reducing the incidence of blood spotting and streaking is possible, it is probably unrealistic to achieve complete avoidance.
