RD&E Project Update: Sheep synchronicity pilot trial

06/06/2022

A four-year Project Partnership between the Livestock Export Program and University of New England (UNE) is providing the science to develop recommendations on stocking density, bedding and ammonia for live cattle and sheep export voyages.

This trial looked at the frequency and synchronicity of behaviours of sheep housed in different group sizes. In the context of this Project Partnership, it will help to understand the group size to be used in future trials aimed at informing stocking density on livestock export ships.
