The sheep dairy industry in Australia is constrained by the absence of a demonstrated profitable model for producing sheep milk, which in turn is largely because dairy breeds of the standard found in Europe are not commercially available.
This RIRDC report describes a series of experiments aimed at defining management techniques that optimise the milk production from the available sheep, and optimise selection for genetic gain in these sheep.
