The last webinar in University of Illinois Extension’s Livestock Production and Principles for Beginners Webinar Series will provide those raising sheep and goats with important information on internal parasites, a threat often overlooked by beginning small ruminant producers. Without proper management, internal parasites can lead to economic losses including increased feed costs, decreased production, and even animal death. 

"We see strong interest from beginning farmers/producers in learning more about raising small ruminants,” states Grant McCarty, Local Foods and Small Farms Educator. "As a continuation of a very popular 2023 session, we knew we wanted to cover a topic that was important for beginning farmers to understand and better manage."

Sheep and Goat Internal Parasite Management will be held on Thursday, March 14, from 6-7 PM CST via Zoom. Presented by Sarah Farley, Extension Educator, Local Food Systems and Small Farms for Lake and McHenry counties, this session will include an overview of common internal parasites, grazing management, symptom observation, testing strategies, and methods for control. Cost is $5. Registration is required by the day before each session to receive the Zoom link to attend. To register or for more information, please visit us online at or call the U of I Extension at 815-235-4125.
