Sheep CRC Practical Wisdom (PW) Notes is a series of practical information published to assist sheep producers to make sound decisions about technology and practices and to then have the know-how to implement their decisions. These notes are created around the technology and practices that the Sheep CRC has investigated, thus they are not intended to cover all aspects of sheep management. New notes will be uploaded as we convert our research results into useful information.

Is long-haul shipping affecting the eating quality of Aussie lamb exports?
Sheepmeat researchers are tackling the problem of what impact long-haul shipping routes have on eating quality, with a new series of consumer trials planned for the United States. Following feedback from American consumers that Australian lamb has a ‘gamey’ flavour, Murdoch University post-graduate researcher Maddison Corlett is examining whether this is true and the possible causes of this perception.
