Strategies to reduce inanition in sheep
Project Code:  W.LIV.0142

Year Published: 2018

Inappetence, the reduction in or lack of appetite with consequent reduced food intake (Blood and Studdert 1999), has been identified as a problem for sheep in the live export process, as a cause of death from inanition, and because of the association with the development of Salmonella outbreaks and subsequent death of animals. The addition of oats over the pellets did not result in any difference in uptake compared to sheep that were fed pellets alone. Spreading of chaff once per day over the pellets did alter the feeding pattern, and the sheep which were provided with chaff visited the feed troughs more often per day, but for shorter visits, than those given only pellets.

HotStuff V5
Project Code:  W.LIV.0277
W.LIV.0277 Addendum

Year Published: 2017

The HotStuff software implements an approach to the assessment of heat stress risk on live export voyages from Australia. It combines animal heat tolerance, weather statistics and vessel parameters to give a scientifically defendable estimate of the numerical risk of mortality in each line of livestock to be loaded. It is used as a risk management tool through the assessment of planned voyages so that unacceptable risk can be avoided well ahead of the loading. This project added to and updated both the method and the software. The software is now at Version 5.0.

Preparation of Rangeland Goats for Live Export
Project Code:  W.LIV.0159

Year Published: 2016

Management of wild goats through the live export chain has in the past been problematic for the live export industry. Variation in management practices prior to export has meant it was difficult to pin-point reasons for variation in consignment performance and as such since 2008 there has been a restriction on exporter licenses which bans the long haul shipment of goats by sea.
