A Sheep & Goat FAMACHA Training for Parasite Control will be hosted by CCE Essex County on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM at their office in Westport, NY. There is a $10 fee per farm to pay for the FAMACHA card & materials. Please bring the fee to the training.
This is a great opportunity for those of you who keep goats or sheep or are considering it. By using the FAMACHA method, you can determine which animals to treat for internal parasites. Betsy Hodge will be the speaker for this training.
Bring a bag lunch. If possible bring a fecal sample from sheep flock or goat herd.
