Internal parasites are a growing health concern for sheep and goat production.
Effective parasite control in sheep and goats requires careful management to
control infection while also slowing down the development of dewormer drug
resistance. Developing an effective and sustainable control program requires an
integrated approach centered upon proper use of drugs, appropriate grazing
management strategies, infection monitoring strategies and an understanding of
the symptoms and risk factors for infection. This 3 h workshop hosted by Dr.
Richard Ehrhardt, MSU Small Ruminant Extension Specialist, will review these
approaches and teach participants how to use the FAMACHA system and perform
quantitative fecal egg counts. Sign up now to participate in this informative
Registration ($20 per person) will include a FAMACHA card and and workshop proceedings.
