During the all day workshop, participants will learn about gastrointestinal parasites that are presenting problems in small ruminants (goats and sheep), anthelmintic resistance and practices to manage parasite loads. The morning session will serve as an introduction for the afternoon hands-on training which will allow participants to get certified on the use of FAMACHA© score card and learn how to conduct fecal egg counts.
