Parasite Prevention & Fecal Egg Counting Workshop/Lab

— Written By

We will be offering two Parasite prevention workshops. The workshops will consist of a classroom presentation and a hands-on fecal egg counting lab. Attendees will learn about chemical/non-chemical means of parasite control, signs of parasitism, health monitoring techniques, and concerns about dewormer resistance. Attendees will receive their own FEC test kits.

Participants will be asked to bring a fresh fecal sample for lab analysis.
