Description

There will be an Integrated Parasite Management (IPM) workshop on Saturday, July 22, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Vista View Farm, 28301 Clarksburg Road, Damascus, Maryland.

Participants (over the age of 16) will become certified in the use of the FAMACHA© eye anemia system. The workshop will consist of two hours of lecture/discussion and two hours of hands-on activity (FAMACHA© + fecal egg counting). Participants will receive a FAMACHA© card and resource booklet. Additional cards may be purchased for $10.

The workshop will also include a demonstration of precision farming techniques, including use of electronic ID (RFID), data recording, and automatic scales. Along with the University of Maryland, Northeast SARE is a co-sponsor of the workshop. Vista View Farm received a SARE grant to use realtime generated gain-of-gain to determine anthelmintic need in lambs.

Pre-registration is required by Monday, July 17. The registration fee is $35 per person, family, or farm. Register at EventBrite. The registration fee can be paid online with a credit card or a check (payable to University of Maryland) can be sent to the Western Maryland Research & Education Center, c/o FAMACHA workshop, 18330 Keedysville Road, Keedysville, MD 21756.
