how to do faecal egg counts for worms
Managing worm burdens in goats is a regular task for most goat breeders and at times it can hit or miss or even simply unnecessary. Knowing how to perform basic faecal egg counts for worms in goats (and sheep, cattle, alpacas and even horses) is as valuable as knowing what the results mean and what are the worm eggs you may have found.
The CB Agricultural College at Tocal, near Paterson, in conjunction with NSW DPI, offers PROfarm short courses to meet the needs of farmers, primary industries, agribusiness and the community.
