CANCELLED – Free Shepherd Seminar – Selecting Sheep for Resistance to Internal Parasites with Susan Schoenian
Sorry, this seminar has been cancelled.
Worms have developed resistance to all dewormers. Alternative methods of parasite control are needed. Genetic selection is one of the most powerful tools available for controlling parasites in sheep flocks. In this seminar, you’ll learn how to select and breed sheep for improved resistance to worms.
