Parasite Management and Copper Oxide Wire Particle Study Update

August 12, 2013 – Goat Parasite Management and Copper Oxide Wire Particle Study Update

Location: Asgaard Farm, 74 Asgaard Way, Au Sable Forks, NY 12912

Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Join Rhonda Butler of Asgaard Farm to learn how she controls internal parasites in her herd and how it affects her pasture management system. Rhonda will share how she incorporates multiple species grazing and other techniques she has used to control parasites. Hear about the dairy goat herd, what products they are marketing and gain advice for your own goat dairy. tatiana Stanton Small Ruminant Specialist for Cornell University and Betsy Hodge St. Lawrence CCE will explain the rationale for using Copper Oxide Wire Particle (COWP) in sheep and goats to try to control barber pole worm and a summation of their COWP studies with sheep and goats thus far. Overuse of chemical dewormers has allowed the barber pole worm (H. contortus) population to develop resistance. A new option to control H. contortus is dosing with copper oxide wire particles (COWP).
Asgaard Farm is a multispecies farm which raises hogs and cattle as well as having a goat dairy. They market pastured pork and beef and process goat milk products including soap, award winning cheeses and caramels.
