Description: This is an annual series of Free research-based workshops, that will be focused on internal parasitism management of sheep and goats because of: * Hardiness should be considered in addition to reproductive merit when making genetic choices. * Sheep and Goats with inherently higher sensitivities to internal parasite loads will exhibit lower production levels, higher maintenance costs, and(or) higher mortality rates. * Wet climate pasture conditions typical of the Southeast US promote the increased condition to gastrointestinal parasitism. Internal parasites are often cited as a major threat to sheep and goat productivity. These are strategies that will improve Enterprise Sustainability and Profitability IMPACTS OF ACES SMALL RUMINANT INTERNAL PARASITES CONTROL Program: have included positive feedbacks for including McMaster for worms Fecal Eggs Count wet-lab training along with the discussion of FAMACHA system. For example, one producer in Alabama indicated that her costs of WORM control in her Kiko herd has dropped from $727 in 2005 to $180 dollars in 2015 as a result of the combined FAMACHA and McMaster FEC trainings. Past educational contacts over the course of this project also affected genetic management when a survey was applied to program participants indicated that 61% of respondents indicated approach to breed selection was affected or changed, 56% of producers started or modified performance recording activities, and 53% of the producer attendees modified their within-herd selection and culling procedures.

Description: The workshop will teach producers how to evaluate bull calves and how to effectively market these bulls once they have been developed into breeding bulls. The workshop will focus on teaching producers how to evaluate a bull calf's skeletal and foot structure, muscling and reproductive potential. These physical attributes are very important in how long the bull can remain in the herd.

Event: Landmark Park/ACES/Wiregrass Beekeepers Association Honey Extraction Demonstration Start: 6/30/18 9:00am
Fee: End: 6/30/18 12:00pm
