New Videos on Parasite Control

The Northeast Small Ruminant Parasite Control Program has created three instructional videos:
  1. How and why to do FAMACHA© scoring
  2. How and why to do sheep and goat fecal egg counting
  3. Microscope crash course for fecal egg counting
Gastrointestinal nematode (GIN) parasites, such as the barber pole worm (Haemonchus contortus), are a serious problem, affecting small ruminant production throughout New England and the world. The goal of Northeast Small Ruminant Parasite Control Program is to improve the parasite control practices of farmers in New England.

Project partners include Cornell University, University of Rhode Island, University of Wisconsin-Madison, West Virginia University, and the VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. For more information about this project including additional resources and updates, go to
