Parasitology Today 4(9): 253-254



In reply to the article by C. Townend (see Parasitology Today, 3: 68-69), the authors criticize the views expressed concerning the operation of mulesing in Australian Merino sheep. It is stated that mulesing is the most effective and efficient means of preventing breech strike by Lucilia cuprina in sheep. It increases the survival rate for lambs directly by reducing breech strike in the first year of life. There is a reply from C.
