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 the 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 & Dr. Richard Brzozowski. Participants will receive an information packet, record sheets and a FAMACHA card.
