Participants will be certified in the use of the FAMACHA© eye anemia system. Upon completion of the course, they will receive a laminated FAMACHA© card. The only way to get a FAMACHA© card is to attend an approved training, such as this one being hosted by the Festival.
The workshop will consist of two hours of lecture/discussion and two hours of hands-on training (FAMACHA© and fecal egg counting). The instructor will be Susan Schoenian, University of Maryland Extension Sheep & Goat Specialist.
