Giving thanks today for the FAMACHA eye color chart and the system developed by South African livestock parasitologist, Francois ‘Fafa’ Malan. This system allows us to identify and treat only the sheep that are infected with Haemonchus (Barber Pole Worm). This greatly decreases the development of flock resistance to anthelmintics.
We are also grateful to Susan Schoenian, Sheep and Goat Specialist for University of Maryland Extension, for the Integrated Parasite Management Workshop. that enabled us to participate in this program.
