Weather is the major influence

It’s autumn, but temperatures are still elevated. In many southern regions good falls of rain will increase the risk of barber’s pole in the next few weeks before daily maximum temperatures drop to below the 18°C cut-off limit for development.  Black scour is also on the rise.  Typically, in March, the incidence of flystrike reaches its peak and flystrike warnings have been issued. Northern parts of the country are still desperately in need of rain for sheep survival.
