Meat & Livestock Australia - Livestock Production R&D Project

Chemical sterilisation as an alternative to spaying of heifers

Indicative Funding
$65,495 over 4 years
Beef cattle that are excess to breeding requirements are routinely sterilised surgically without the use of pain relief or anaesthesia. Mortalities are not uncommon. The aim of this project is to determine if intraovarian administration of a zinc based compound or calcium chloride can sterilise heifers. If treatment is successful it could provide an alternative method of sterilisation that could provide better welfare outcomes and improve productivity.
