Parasite workshop and FAMACHA training
These parasite workshops are designed to give the producer comprehensive training in managing worm problems in his herd. The workshop covers biology of the worm to answer questions like how long does a pasture stay contaminated or how close to the ground can I graze? We cover dewormer resistance, how you get it and what you can do about it. We provide training in FAMACHA which is selective deworming animals that need to be dewormed. This reduces the development of dewormer resistance and helps you identify which animals require the most deworming. We also show producers how to do their own fecal egg counts. There is no charge for the workshop.
Famacha cards are for sale for $10.00 and fecal egg counting slides for $20.00. Lunch will be on your own.
