Mission Statement

The American (formerly Southern) Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control was formed in 2003 in response to the critical state of the small ruminant industry associated with the emergence of anthelmintic resistant worms. The mission of the ACSRPC is two-fold: (1) developing novel methods for sustainable control of gastrointestinal parasites in small ruminants and (2) providing information to the stakeholders in the small ruminant industry on the most up-to-date methods and guidelines for management of gastrointestinal parasites.


The ACSRPC membership includes scientists, veterinarians, extension specialists, and others who meet regularly and are in close communication, continuously updating guidelines for parasite management.  Members are from national and international institutions, including universities, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and industries.
