Tail docking reduces soiling of wool with urine and faeces. This reduces the risk of sheep contracting the painful and potentially fatal disease fly strike and reduces the risk of carcass contamination in the abattoir. Castration reduces fighting between males, improves meat and wool quality and enables the farmer to selectively breed sheep for beneficial traits by use of superior sires.
