All Worms All Day
All Worms All Day is the theme of the Delmarva Small Ruminant Conference to be held Saturday, December 9, 2017, at Delaware State University in Dover, Delaware.
The all-day conference will focus exclusively on gastrointestinal parasites, which are problematic on most small ruminant farms. The program will seek to educate stakeholders on the most up-to-date methods and recommendations for controlling parasites. It will include general and concurrent sessions and a separate program for older youth.
All speakers in the adult program are members of the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control (ACSRPC). They include Dr. Kwame Matthews, Delaware State University; Dr. Nelson Escobar, University of Maryland Eastern Shore; Susan Schoenian, University of Maryland; Dr. Dahlia O’Brien, Virginia State University; and Dr. Niki Whitley, Fort Valley State University.
Youth instructors will be Susan Garey and Dan Severson from the University of Delaware and Ashley Travis from the University of Maryland. The youth program will be hands-on and interactive. Participation is limited to older youth, age 14 and above.
Pre-registration is required by November 20. Registration fees are $40 for adults and $30 for youth. Fees cover lunch, refreshments, and materials.
