MINNEAPOLIS — The University of Minnesota Extension will host a goat and sheep nutrition webinar on Tuesday June 15th starting at 7:30pm CT. Dr. Kelly Froehlich will provide insight on internal parasites including deworming and fecal egg counts for goats and sheep. Farmers, 4-Hers, ag business professionals who work with farmers, and those interested in goats or sheep are invited to attend.
Speaker & Topics
Parasites are an extraordinarily important topic to address for the summer; in fact, it is a #1 concern for small ruminant producers. What is the right deworming strategy for your sheep and goat operation? With what and how often should we utilize dewormers to keep our sheep/goats thriving and healthy in the pasture? What are fecal egg counts, and how can they help measure and manage internal parasites? These questions and more will be addressed during the webinar.
Dr. Kelly Froehlich, South Dakota State University Extension Sheep and Goat Specialist, will discuss how we can effectively reduce parasite negative impacts for our flock/herd. Parasitic animals require extra nutrients, and mismanagement can be extremely detrimental to the thriftiness of the animal and profitability of an operation. Learn the life cycle of internal parasites, proper management protocol, and how our animals can enjoy the summer grazing period.
