Short Wool Lice Tool for Sheep


This program helps to assess whether sheep should be treated after shearing. It estimates the probability that the flock is infested with lice at shearing by separately estimating the risk that:

  • lice were present at the last shearing but were not eradicated
  • lice entered with purchased rams, ewes or other stock
  • lice entered on stray sheep

For some screens you can indicate in the first question that there are no relevant sheep in that category and skip further questions on that screen

Click on the Start button below to begin, then use the Next button to proceed through the stages. Should you wish to change any options chosen in previous stages then use the Back button to step backwards and modify your selections.
