Integrated Parasite Management Workshops

As part of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore's Small Farm Workshop Series, Small Ruminant Integrated Parasite Management Workshops will be held on Saturday, March 15, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, at the Central Maryland Research & Education Center in Upper Marlboro, MD; and on Saturday, April 12, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, at  the Food Science and Technology Building at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES).

During the day, workshop participants will learn about the gastrointestinal parasites that badger small ruminants, anthelmintic resistance, and practices to mitigate or manage parasite burdens. The 3-hour morning session will serve as an introduction for the afternoon hands-on training session, which will allow participants to get certified in the use of the FAMACHA score card and learn how to conduct fecal egg counts.
