Latest news: The Journal of Australian Veterinary Association recently printed the latest findings on the Prevalence of breech-strike in mulesed, clipped and unmulesed Merino hoggets in south-eastern Australia:
"Over all the farms, breech-strike occurred on 1.1% of mulesed sheep and 7.7% of clipped sheep. Clipped sheep had a relative risk of breech-strike of 18.2-, 16.8- and 3.0-fold that of mulesed sheep on the three farms. Unmulesed sheep treated with dicyclanil had a similar prevalence of breech-strike to that of mulesed sheep (overall 0.9%, range 0–2.5%), but had significantly more dag, stain and wrinkle."
