10:30 - 12:00 FAMACHA Training, $25 Fee -- Sally Mangra
Runs concurrent with Basic Sheparding Workshop
The barber pole worm is a silent killer, causing anemia and certain death if not treated. The FAMACHA technique shows the producer which animals to deworm, and more importantly, which animals do NOT need deworming. These are the individuals to keep for future breeding stock. Internal parasite resistance is inherited, and through FAMACHA record keeping and a thoughtful breeding program, the producer can produce a more parasite resistant flock. Sign up and pay below.
