If you’re a wool producer, the Better Choices® program offers a chance to certify and declare that your wool uses best-practice methods. The program’s certification signposts to members of the community that the production methods you use are in line with the program and importantly you are working to create a better life for livestock.
Join over 3,000 Australian wool growers who have made a Better Choice by using pain relief at mulesing to help manage flystrike.
The Journal of Australian Veterinary Association stated that flystrike is, “a major animal health and welfare problem for sheep production in Australia, estimated to cost A $280m annually”. The Better Choices® community understands the devastating effects of significant flystrike, and while lamb and wool prices are up, it pays to use pain management.
