ParaBoss

ParaBoss is designed as an integrated national program providing best practice advice for managing sheep parasites in different environments in Australia.  It is the umbrella for the three flagship programs:

 

WormBoss, FlyBoss and LiceBoss will continue to operate as stand alone programs and can be accessed directly.  ParaBoss as such will be a entry point providing links to the three main sites.  It will also be the administrative centre for coordination both within and between the parasite management programs.

A team of specialists will keep the web sites up-to-date and there will be an executive officer to coordinate workshops, data gathering and publicity.  A Steering Committee, responsible for policy and research matter, will represent major stakeholders and funders.

Given the fact that parasites have a major impact on both wool and meat production, both MLA and AWI are closely involved in the establishment of ParaBoss.  In addition, Departments of Primary Industry, universities and research organisations are major stakeholders.

Major benefits of the ParaBoss program include:

  • Single source access to up-to-date information and advice on best-practice management options; and
  • Sharing specialist expertise across organisations and States in order to achieve the most efficient use of scarce resources.
