Practical Farmers of Iowa offers an opportunity to learn the essentials of livestock parasites from Iowa State University veterinary pathologist Matt Brewer in this hands-on workshop. It will start with an overview of different livestock parasites, placing special emphasis on those that are transmissible to humans. After the discussion, participants will have a chance to practice performing fecal egg counts on manure samples. The workshop will also give farmers a chance to ask questions and share their experiences with veterinarians. Registration is limited.
