Hands on small ruminant parasite workshop (Licking County)

Learn about internal parasite issues and how to use FAMACHA as a selective deworming tool.  You will also learn to do your own fecal egg counts at home.  The workshop will include hands on evaluation of sheep using the FAMACHA system at Dale McCombs farm near Johnstown and then go to the Licking County Extension office for training to do fecal egg counts  on your own.  The cost will be $40 and include a McMaster slide for fecal egg counts, handouts and lunch.  We are limiting attendance to 20 to assure good hands on participation time.
