Antibiotic Medication for the Treatment of Ovine Keratoconjunctivitis (IOK or Pink Eye) in Pre-Export Feedlots
Project Code:  W.LIV.0163

Year Published: 2014

Within the live export industry infectious ovine keratoconjunctivitis (IOK) remains an ongoing challenge.  With increasing scrutiny on the health and welfare of animals within the industry it is important to address persistent issues.  With an estimated 0.5% of sheep rejected from the export trade annually and additional costs related to holding sheep back from shipments for treatment, this work was undertaken to determine a treatment that was effective and easily administered to the numbers of sheep involved.

LATSA 2.1 monitoring and validating model
Project Code:  W.LIV.0283

Year Published: 2014

The Livestock Air Transport Safety Assessment (LATSA) software program estimates the generation of key physiological data such as heat, moisture, and carbon dioxide from livestock during transportation by aircraft. The LATSA software provides a tool for exporters to assist with planning for the safe transport of livestock by air to export standards.

The information used to predict heat, moisture and carbon dioxide production inside an aircraft hold is however based on theoretical data. Little real time data exists for the environments that are being modelled. The purpose of this project was to validate the predictions of the LATSA 2.0 software through the acquisition of real time data.
