Permalink Free Fecal Egg Counts Offered for Northeast Small Ruminant Producers

Through the SARE project "New Approaches for Improving Integrated Parasite Control Strategies for Small Ruminants in the Northeast," the University of Rhode Island is offering free Fecal Egg Count analysis for Northeastern small ruminant producers and National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) members marketing animals to Northeast producers. The counts will assist with selective breeding for resistance to gastrointestinal nematodes. Samples will be accepted for analysis during the summer months of 2017 from FAMACHA-certified producers in New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware. The project focuses on testing young replacement animals.
