2025 marks 28 years since the International Sheep Veterinary Congress was last held in Australia, so this Congress provides the opportunity for a new generation of sheep veterinarians to engage with world leading researchers in the field, and experience extensive sheep production systems. Australia has the second largest sheep flock in the world.
Australian sheep veterinarians have achieved many notable, historical successes, such as eradicating sheep scab, scrapie and FMD, developing the first anthrax vaccine, as well as the pioneering work with footrot, trace mineral nutrition and in parasitology, especially with nematodiasis, cutaneous myiasis and pediculosis (body lice).
The Congress theme is: 'HEALTHY SHEEP TO FEED AND CLOTHE THE WORLD', reflecting Australia's position as the world's largest exporting nation of sheep meat and wool, and the high health status of the Australian sheep flock.
