A FAMACHA card at long last


I spent the day Saturday at another excellent sheep and goat workshop organized by the local Extension Service. This one was specifically about internal parasites, and I came home with a FAMACHA card so I can test for barberpole-worm infestations the easy way on my home turf.

You'll need to attend a workshop yourself if you'd like your own card, but I'll share an update on the efficacy of chemical and non-chemical dewormers in a later post. Stay tuned!
