Integrated Parasite Management Webinar
Thursday, October 22, 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. MDT
Join NCAT sustainable agriculture specialist Dave Scott for an online Integrated Parasite Management training for sheep on Thursday, October 22, beginning at 12:30 p.m. MDT.
Livestock and sheep specialists from Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho will explain how to deworm strategically using FAMACHA scoring, use proper grazing to avoid Barber Pole Worm ingestion, and how genetic selection can mitigate the devastating influence the Barber Pole Worm can have on your flock.
In addition to Dave Scott, who is also the co-owner of Montana Highland Lamb ranch, presenters include Dr. Whit Stewart, sheep specialist at the University of Wyoming Extension; Dr. Melinda Ellison, sheep specialist at the University of Idaho Extension, and Caleb Pirc, owner of Good Shepherd Farm in Idaho.
FAMACHA cards will be given to those who have completed the training and provided a video of themselves demonstrating the FAMACHA technique.
