Saturday, Oct. 6, 9 am to 2 pm. Learn about SIPM-Sustainable Integrated Parasite Management in Goats and Sheep. Speaker: Susan Schoenian, Sheep and Goat Specialist at the University of Maryland’s Western Maryland Research & Education Center. She represents the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control. This video presentation revisits a live workshop Susan presented here at SOREC in June 2018. Attend this presentation at the reduced price of $35. ($25 for the second person from the same operation). Following the presentation, all participants are welcomed to stay and discuss building a personalized farm plan for Sustainable Integrated Parasite Management. Gastrointestinal parasites of sheep and goats are becoming increasingly resistant to currently available commercial de-wormers. Parasite loads not only reduce performance, but can lead to animal death. When infected animals are sold parasites may spread to other pastures. Learn more sustainable methods at this presentation.
