Foot health webinar series

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.

Dick Brzozowski demonstrates proper hoof trimming technique.

The webinars will also explain genetic markers that could identify sheep that are naturally resistant to the disease. Presenters will be Susan Schoenian from University of Maryland Extension and Dr. Richard Brzozowski from the University of Maine

February 21 and 28, 2012
7:00 to 8:00 PM

Registration is required. Both webinars are free. The webinars are a part of the Sheep Foot Health Research & Education Project funded by Northeast SARE.

Will there be another event like this this year? I would love to learn how to treat foot diseases on farm animals. I am a farmer's daughter and a podiatrist too. :)
