If you are raising sheep or goats, this hands-on program is for you. This workshop will provide education on parasite control in small ruminants, as well as certify producers in FAMACHA.

The workshop will be held on Friday, September 1 · 1 – 4 p.m. at the Western NC Livestock Center: 474 Stock Dr, Canton, NC 28716  Cost is $25.

FAMACHA is a method for measuring the level of anemia in small ruminants (sheep and goats) and camelids caused by the barber pole worm. FAMACHA scores can be utilized, along with other management practices, in making decisions about parasite control methods. At the end of this training, you’ll be certified in the correct FAMACHA method and receive your own FAMACHA scorecard. This workshop will be divided into two segments: classroom education and hands-on learning. Both components are mandatory to satisfy the requirements for FAMACHA certification.
