The ParaBoss Worm Egg Count Quality Assurance (WEC QA) Program was developed by the University of England (UNE), under the guidance of Dr Brown Besier, with the development phase funded by Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation.
It is based on a similar program operated in the past by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, Western Australia.
It is the only program of this type operating in Australia.
The ongoing operation of the program is managed by UNE on a cost-recovery basis using fees from participants.
