National Flystrike and Cold Risk Maps

These maps show the Ag360™ predictions for flystrike and extreme weather risk across Australia for the next 5 days.

You can gain tailored risk data for your farm through Ag360. It draws on your farm data and weather forecasts to predict more production and well-being risks and opportunities for the sheep and cattle on your property.

Get on the front foot – sign up to Ag360 for alerts to help prevent flystrike in your sheep weeks in advance, based on your local forecast, on-farm practices, (eg crutching, treatments), sheep type and breed.

Weather data used is sourced from the Bureau of Meteorology.

Using the Ag360 national risk maps

The maps are  in "play" mode, cycling through the 5-day period with 3 seconds on each day — watch the dates and  risk colour pattern change progressively.

Arrows and play/pause buttons at the top right corner of each map allow you to move to one of the days and pause the map progress.

There are 4 risk maps:

  • Flystrike risk for Adult ewes
  • Flystrike risk for lambs
  • Cold risk for adult sheep
  • Cold risk for lambs

Flystrike Risk - Ewes

This map predicts the risk of flystrike in adult sheep from forecast rain and temperatures across Australia in the next five days.

Sign up to Ag360 for alerts to help prevent flystrike in your sheep weeks in advance, based on your local forecast, on-farm practices, (eg crutching, treatments), sheep type and breed.

Flystrike Risk - Lambs

This map predicts the risk of flystrike in lambs in the next five days from forecast rain and temperatures across Australia. After rain, flystrike risk is much higher for lambs than grown sheep.

Sign up to Ag360 for alerts weeks in advance, based on your local forecast, on-farm practices, (eg crutching, treatments), and the characteristics of your weaners.

Cold Snap Risk - Shorn Sheep

This map predicts risk for sheep up to six weeks off-shears, not surviving a big drop in temperature – a cold snap – in the next five days across Australia.


Sign up to Ag360 to receive cold snap alerts for your property and get up to five days’ notice to plan the best protection for your shorn sheep.

Cold Snap Risk - Lambs

This map predicts the risk of losing lighter and multiple-born lambs up to three days old from chill - cold, wet and windy weather - in the next five days across Australia.

Sign up to Ag360 to receive alerts up to five days ahead of extreme chill risk at lambing. Use the warning to keep your lambing ewes on the most productive paddocks where possible, and on sheltered paddocks when necessary.
