Sheep killed after falling out of moving stock vehicle on way to sale

AN INCIDENT that left sheep falling out of a moving vehicle has resulted in a swag of charges for the truckie behind the wheel. Police stopped a stock truck east of Dubbo on June 4 after observing an issue with the rear doors. “They observed a rear door on the trailer open, exposing the stock to a risk of falling from the vehicle,” NSW Police State Rural Crime Co-ordinator Detective Inspector Cameron Whiteside said. READ ALSO: Seven times over the drink driving limit and still behind the wheel “We were working on a report that one [sheep] fell out and died and one was injured.” Det Insp Whiteside said the open doors had “exposed both decks of sheep from falling out of the truck”. Officers will allege that the 57-year-old female driver from Tooraweenah did not hold a driver's licence for this type of vehicle and did not hold the correct permits for stock transport.

The merino sheep were being transported from Elong Elong to the Dunedoo sale yards. READ ALSO: Think it's been warm in your town so far this winter?

Det Insp Whiteside the safe transport of stock is vital for all carriers.

Uni student’s survey aims to help boost lamb survival

Sheep producers across western NSW are being encouraged to participate in an online survey that investigates vaccination and nutritional supplementation of sheep. Former Peak Hill resident and current Charles Sturt University student, Kayla Kopp, is conducting the investigation as part of her studies. Ms Kopp's PhD at Charles Sturt's School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is investigating the nutritional supplementation of lambing ewes and sheep producers are being asked to take part in the survey. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes and participants remain anonymous.

"One in five lambs born in Australia die within days of birth, costing the industry over $1 billion each year," Professor Friend said. "Our research aims to better understand how those losses occur and to develop knowledge and tools that will help producers improve animal health and boost lamb survival." READ ALSO: Walgett's Jill Roughley, runs her property with guts and determination The survey is available online (www.surveymonkey.com/r/ lambsurvey) and sheep producers are invited to take part in the research until Saturday, August 31. Participants must be producers currently involved in the sheep industry either as farm owners or managers in NSW; must have ewes lambing on their property annually; and must have at least 50 sheep on their property. The survey builds on Miss Kopp's earlier field studies focused on nutritional supplementation and milk production. Data from the study will contribute to research on animal welfare, animal nutrition and sheep production.
