Are People Still Mulesing?

Last year 81,265 bales were declared as not museled e.g. farms that have ceased mulesing. This is 4.0% of the total clip of 1,967,870 bales offered.
 

  • The number of bales declared as not mulesed has risen sharply:
    - 2008 / 2009 = 44,000 Bales
    - 2009 / 2010 = 58,000 Bales
    - 2010 / 2011 = 81,000 Bales
     

Where to Now?
None of the research to replace mulesing seems to have yielded viable alternative. Many farmers now mules and use pain killers and report excellent results. Both suggest mulesing will be ongoing.
