Sheep Enhanced Abattoir Surveillance Field Day @ Barossa TBA
Oct 22 @ 8:30 am – 11:00 am

Processor feedback on health conditions workshop

As part of the Enhanced Abattoir Surveillance (EAS) Project at University of Adelaide we would like to engage with producers and discuss health conditions in their sheep. We will get a veterinarian involved to go through various relevant health conditions that reports feedback via the EAS programme and in particular how to control them.


What does participation include?


Your feedback information and production data sent to EAS project group that will be shared with a selected veterinarian. Production data that might be of interest if it is available:

  • lambing/marking % and/or #lambs marked/#ewes joined
  • carcase weight & fat score of lambs processed (feedback sheet/LDL)
  • sheep health feedback
    • LDL for the Sheep Health Monitoring Programme (NSHMP)
    • EAS feedback that you have received from Biosecurity SA
  • information on your vaccination program; e.g. 1 or 2 shots for lambs +/- booster for ewes pre-lambing, 5-1, 6-1, 7-1, Eryvac etc.
  • what drenches (groups) you use, and what the drench program is for lambs (& other sheep on the property) during the year?
  • Worming of farm dogs and access for visitors’ dogs


Field day 1

In September, we will have a field day with 5-8 producers. We will arrange more than one field day if there is enough interest.

Health conditions and control methods will be discussed with veterinarian. This will be informal discussions and input from all participants will be relevant


We will have a follow-up session after lambs have been processed likely in February/March 2021.  This will give you opportunity to clarify any questions in regarding to manage conditions and discuss any additional issues.


This workshop should give you opportunity to develop an action plan in response to health feedback received from the abattoir. If you are interested in participating please contact Georgie Keynes georgie.keynes@biggroup.org.au or Emma Peters emma.peters@adelaide.edu.au
