A final report for The Australian Government Department Of The Environment And Heritage, published in 2004, written by Mr Keith Bellchambers.
A report from Wildlife Research 32, published in 2005. The efficacy of Judas Goats is often impaired by their fertility; females that are pregnant or which become impregnated leave the herd to give birth, while males may impregnate feral females that remain unmustered. This...
The use of Judas goats (JGs; Capra hircus) to locate remnant animals is a powerful tool for enhancing feral goat eradication efforts, being especially important to island conservation programs. JGs are goats that are captured, fitted with radio telemetry collars and released. As...
Fifteen years ago it was proposed that the conversion of kangaroos from a pest to an economically valuable resource would allow graziers to reduce the numbers of domestic stock and thereby lower total grazing pressure. Since then, little progress towards this goal has been...
As part of assessments of the palatability of different formulations for baits to be used for the control of feral goats, iopanoic acid and iophenoxic acid were compared as bait markers. After goats ingested iopanoic acid (25, 50, and 100 mg kg-'), peak plasma iodine...
A remotely fired net-gun was used at a waterhole for capturing wild goats and urial in an area where helicopters could not be used. Twenty-six goats and eight urial were caught, with a capture effort of 12.5 person-hours per goat, and 59.5 person-hours per urial. Up to four...
This study was designed to develop monitoring techniques based on aerial survey and to evaluate the effectiveness of control methods for large feral herbivores (especially goats) in the mulga woodlands. It was conducted on a study site in south-western Queensland encompassing...
Objectives 1. Review and evaluate methods developed for assessing the risks of new feral goat populations establishing through escapes from new and existing goat enterprises. 2. Describe the different legislative and policy instruments used by jurisdictions in Australia to...
The movement patterns of ten feral goats fitted with radio transmitters were examined over a 20 month period in a semi-arid woodland of western New South Wales. The mean distance between locations (fixes) was 3.1 km at 42 day intervals. The mean interfix distance for male goats...
In this study we examined the utility of manipulating artificial waters as a means of managing total grazing pressure in semi-arid rangelands of eastern Australia. We tested the efficacy of 'Finlayson trough' exclosure technology at three locations, over two summers, in paddocks...
Shrubs are increasing in density in extensive areas of semi-arid woodland in Queenstand and New South Wales, reducing their carrying capacity for stock and increasing the difficulty of sheep management. A case study is reported in which an area exclosed from grazing increased...
