New domain names for SCSRPC

The Southern Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control (SCSRPC) was formed in response to the critical state of the small ruminant industry associated with the emergence of anthelmintic-resistant worms.

using the FAMACHA card to determine eye anemia and the need for dewormingSCSRPC is a group of scientists, veterinarians, and extension agents devoted to (1) developing novel methods for sustainable control of gastrointestinal nematodes in small ruminants and (2) educating the stakeholders in the small ruminant industry on the most up to date methods and recommendations for control of gastro-intestinal nematodes.

Members of SCSRPC meet regularly and are in close communication, continuously updating recommendations for parasite control. They represent several universities, research institutions, and countries.

The group maintains a web site at Recently, several new domain names were purchased to make it easier to find the web site, which contains information about the FAMACHA© system and other novel methods for controlling internal parasitism in sheep and goats.
