Internal parasite management is a major hurdle for success in both sheep and goat production.  To help sheep and goat producers deal with this challenge, Michigan State University Extension is offering an educational program at three locations in Michigan.  Participants will learn how to more effectively deal with parasite issues through discussion and hands-on activities.  Join Dr. Richard Ehrhardt, MSU Small Ruminant Specialist and Roberta Osborne, MSUE Small Ruminant educator, as well as other MSUE staff at a location convenient to you, for a day of fun-filled learning activities that will include both classroom and on-farm activities and training.
