Location: Naracoorte Town Hall, Naracoorte, SA

Cost: Free - waived for the pilot

The cost of internal parasites to the Australian sheep industry is estimated at $655 million, including both prevention and production losses. Substantial gains in productivity and cost savings are possible at the farm level.

ParaBoss is developing a one-day workshop for sheep producers to help them improve their on-farm productivity and overall success of managing worms on farms.

Attendance is free of charge, and all workshop resources and catering will be supplied on the day. Places are limited to ensure excellent interaction between presenters and attendees.

We look forward to you joining us at the pilot. Please register here

The workshops will facilitate:

  • An improvement in overall skills and confidence of sheep producers in their understanding of internal parasite management
  • Improve access by producers to key sources of information
  • Less production losses/mortality from parasites in flocks
  • Increased effectiveness of drenches and parasiticides
  • Decreased impacts of chemical resistance

Please do not hesitate to contact Megan Rogers, ParaBoss Extension on 0427 459 891, should you have any questions.
