Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering two workshops this spring, one on parasite control (as part of the FAMACHA certification) and another on interpreting soil sample reports. Participants attending the soil sampling workshop on April 7th in Jamestown, NY will learn “… why it’s important to sample soils, how to take a soil sample, the difference between a pH test and a full analysis soil sample, and how to read a soil sample report.” Those attending the parasite workshop on April 4th will learn about the FAMACHA system, “…a unique and easily accessible system for small ruminant producers to make deworming decisions based on an estimate of the level of anemia in sheep and goats associated with barber pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) infection.” For more information, click here!
