Presenters: Susan Schoenian, University of Maryland and Richard Brzozowski, University of Maine

Two one-hour webinars (parts 1 and 2) will teach beginner and experienced sheep and goat producers the cause of footrot in sheep and goats, the conditions that promote the disease, how to prevent foot diseases with effective biosecurity, how to treat footrot, how to effectively trim hooves, and the specific protocol to eliminate the disease from farms.  The webinars will also explain genetic markers that could identify sheep that are naturally resistant to the disease.

Registration required. Both webinars are free.

The webinars are a part of the Sheep Foot Health Research & Education Project funded by Northeast SARE.
