We will discuss the current state of thinking on best management practices for control of internal parasites in sheep. This will include reducing dependence upon anthelmintic de-wormers through the use of diagnostic tools that allow targeted selective treatment of only the animals in the flock that actually need it, as well as use of alternative (non-chemical) control technologies in an integrated parasite management (IPM) system.
This webinar is made possible with funding support from the American Sheep Industry Association and the Rebuild the Sheep Inventory Committee.
