Parasites are the most important limiting factor in small ruminant flocks. In this class Jason Detzel, our Livestock Educator, will discuss the lifecycle and biology of parasites affecting small ruminants and the many ways to treat them.

A fecal egg count is a simple procedure you can perform at home to get an approximation of the parasite load that your sheep or goats are carrying. In addition to learning more about this, we'll go over management techniques that will allow you to:

  • lower your counts
  • treat to avoid resistance
  • promote healthy flocks.

At the completion of the course you will have monthly access to the CCEUC microscope to analyze your own samples for a small fee.

Registration will be posted in the future.
