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


The new Best Management Practices to Control Internal Parasites in Small Ruminants Fact Sheets Series is designed to help sheep, goat, and camelid producers manage gastro-intestinal parasitism in their flocks and herds. The fact sheets are also being developed as an educational resource for people teaching FAMACHA© workshops and similar educational programs.

Each fact sheet is being written by a member of the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control and each will be reviewed by 3 or 4 other consortium members, including a veterinarian parasitologist.
