Description

There will be an Integrated Parasite Management (IPM; FAMACHA©) workshop on Sunday, August 13, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Zekiah Farm, 5235 Bryantown Road, Waldorf, Maryland.

Participants (over the age of 16) will become certified in the use of the FAMACHA© eye anemia system. The FAMACHA© system, along with the Five Point Check©, is a proven method for making deworming decisions in small ruminants.

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.

Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, August 9. The registration fee is $35 per person, family, or farm. Register at https://famacha2.eventbrite.com. 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.
