Webinar on Parasite Management

The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) and it's Rebuild the Sheep Industry Committee is sponsoring a webinar on parasites. The webinar will take place on Tuesday, August 27, 2013, at 7 p.m. EST. Pre-registration is required.

The webinar, entitled "A New Approach to Parasite Management" will be conducted by Drs. Tom Terrill and Will Getz from Fort Valley State University (in Georgia). Dr. Terrill is the coordinator of the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control (ACSRPC). Dr. Getz is also a member of the consortium.

According to Drs. Terrill and Getz, "We will discuss the current state of thinking on best management practices for control of internal parasites in sheep. This will include reducing dependence upon anthelmintic de-wormers through the use of diagnostic tools that allow targeted selective treatment of only the animals in the flock that actually need it, as well as use of alternative (non-chemical) control technologies in an integrated parasite management (IPM) system."
