Amy Barkley

Join Amy Barkley of the SWNYDLFC Team and Lynn Bliven of CCE Allegany for a comprehensive, hands-on FAMACHA training. We will review common internal parasites of sheep and goats, anti-parasitic drug classes and the use of Integrated Pest Management to reduce resistance in parasite populations, and pasture management for optimal forage production and limiting of potential parasite burdens. 

Students who successfully complete the training will be provided with a FAMACHA Card that they will be able to use to check anemia scores in their flocks and herds.

Date: Thursday, October 6th

Time: 4:00pm - 6:30pm

Where: Mitrowski House Farm, Machias NY.

Training cost: $22/farm. Included in the registration fee is the training, pre and post exam, printed packet of materials, and FAMACHA card. A farm is welcome to bring as many people as they'd like, but each additional FAMACHA packet will cost $22.00. 

We will be standing and/or walking for the entirety of the training. You may bring a chair or bench to sit on if you wish.
