Join us for a two-part series to learn about parasite management in livestock. We will discuss best management practices for controlling parasites in our herds and flocks.

Fecal Egg Count

  • Wednesday, July 13, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. –  N.C. Cooperative Extension Davidson County Center, 301 E. Center St., Lexington, NC

We will discuss fecal egg counts (FEC): why we do them, utilizing results to make management decisions, benefits, and limitations. Participants will learn how to perform a FEC. All livestock will be included for the discussion; however, there will be a large focus on small ruminants.


  • Wednesday, July 20, 8 a.m.-11 a.m. – Local Davidson County Farm, Location TBA

Part two: Hands-on training for certification in FAMACHA. FAMACHA is a management tool that allows small ruminant producers to assess anemia in sheep and goats caused by the barber pole worm. Participants will be taught the proper way to evaluate an animal for barber pole infection utilizing FAMACHA.

Cost is $5 per session, per person.

Register online for one or both sessions. Registration deadline (which includes payment) is Monday, July 11. Spaces are limited.
