Formatted Abstract/Summary
Impact of lice

The most recent estimate of the cost of lice (Bovicola ovis) to the Australian sheep industry was $123m p.a. of which $84m was due to control costs and $39m to production losses (Sackett et al 2006). By zone this equated to $1.04 per head in the high rainfall zone, $1.05 in the cereal sheep zone, $1.44 in the pastoral zone and $0.89 in prime lamb flocks. These values are based on estimated prevalence of 13% in the high rainfall and cereal sheep zones, 21% in the pastoral zone and 20% in prime lamb flocks. Clearly, if the prevalence of lice increases so does the industry cost of lice. [extract]
