Autumn is here, but it is still warm enough for flystrike. Will your sheep get to the cooler weather before your fly protection runs out? The FlyBoss Optimise Treatment Tool can help you choose the most cost-effective application time for treatments.
Aside from breeding for flystrike resistance and using breech modification, shearing, crutching and chemical prevention are the three mainstays for flystrike prevention.
The timing of these is critical to flystrike prevention.
Try the Optimise Treatment Tool to see what period of protection your current system is likely to achieve and to optimise the treatment time.
The tool is simple to use.
Please note that the tool uses long-term average weather data. In some wet years you may need to treat earlier.
The figure below shows an example of the output from the Optimise Treatment Tool, showing input fields and the flystrike risk graph.
