Internal parasites are one of the largest health issues that affect sheep and goats across the country. A lot of producers are unaware how important it is to understand parasites in their flocks. In this workshop, producers will be taught the basics of parasite control as well as how to develop integrated parasite management programs for their farms that include evasive grazing and selective deworming and/or alternative treatments. We will also go over the current status of several alternative methods of parasite control.

As part of this workshop you will receive hands-on training on 

1) how to use the FAMACHA© Anemia Guide (good only for the barber pole worm) and five point checks to determine the need for treatment

2) how to do fecal egg identification and analysis.

You are encouraged to bring a refrigerated fecal sample of 8 to 10 fecal pellets in a baggie from one sheep or goat at your farm to the workshop. In the interest of biosecurity please wear clean clothes and shoes to the workshop and plan to change them prior to doing your own farm chores.

Includes FAMACHA card.

The speakers are Dr. tatiana L. Stanton, Cornell Sheep & Goat State Extension Specialist and Janice Liotta from the Cornell University Dwight Bowman Parasitology Lab

Limited to 10 participants.

Announcements

Spotted Lanternfly

Lycorma delicatula, or Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), is an invasive plant hopper from Asia and is an agricultural pest. In the United States, it was first found in Pennsylvania in 2014. Spotted Lanternfly has been found in New York State on Staten Island, all New York City boroughs, Long Island, Port Jervis, Sloatsburg, Orangeburg, Ithaca, Binghamton, Middletown, Newburgh, Highland, and the Buffalo area. SLF threatens the agriculture and forestry industries, and is also a nuisance pest. The nymphs and adults feed on over 70 different plants, but is especially detrimental to grapes, a black walnut, hops, maple trees and apples. New York State Ag and Markets supported CCE efforts to help bring awareness to communities and we developed this Public Service Announcement and would appreciate you sharing it with your member lists.
