FAMACHA & Microscope-Use Workshops 2012 for Sheep and Goat Producers

FAMACHA workshops are designed to equip sheep and goat producers with the skills and knowledge to determine the degree of infection of Haemonchus contorutus (barber pole worm) in sheep and goats using blood color of the capillaries around the eye. The barber pole worm is a blood sucking internal parasite that is a common cause of death and poor-doing in small ruminants. The workshops will be presented by Dr. Thomas Settlemire and Dr. Richard Brzozowski. Participants will receive an information packet, record sheets and a FAMACHA card. The fee to participate in a FAMACHA workshop is $20.00 per farm. The microscope-use workshop is free. One or more individuals from each farm are welcome to participate.
