​Best Management Practices to Control Internal Parasites in Small Ruminants Factsheet Series

The Best Management Practices to Control Internal Parasites in Small Ruminants Factsheet series was designed to help sheep, goat, and camelid producers manage gastro-intestinal parasitism in their flocks and herds. The fact sheets were also developed as an educational resource for people teaching FAMACHA© workshops and/or similar educational programs.  Each factsheet was written by a member of the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control and  reviewed by 3 to 4 other consortium members (or experts), including a veterinarian parasitologist.  In 2022, the consortium began translating some of the factsheets into Spanish. In 2023, the consortium began reviewing fact sheets that were written more than 5 years ago. This process will continue to ensure all fact sheets contain the most accurate and up-to-date information and recommendations.
