MLA are looking for Australian sheep producers to take part in additional trials of the Numnuts® device, to be conducted in the second half of 2019, from September onwards.
The focus will be on trials in a commercial environment to assess further subjective and objective pain response behaviours using Numnuts. Successful applicants will take part in an on-farm trial in partnership with MLA and an appointed veterinary consultant. Specific details of the trial set-up will be supplied to participants by MLA, who will be providing compensation towards the costs incurred by producers for their participation in the trials.
