Managing Internal Parasites in Small Ruminants


Saturday, November 2, 2013 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Parasite control is one of the limiting factors for profitable and sustainable small ruminant production and is a constant threat to animal health. During this workshop, Dr. Charles Estill will give a presentation about parasite life cycles and management techniques with emphasis on preventative management methods.  Dr. Susan Kerr from Washington State University will teach participants how to perform fecal egg counts using microscopes and provide certification training for the FAMACHA system of barberpole worm monitoring. Participants are encouraged to bring fresh manure samples from parasitized sheep or goats.
