Christa, Tommy and Ricky:
Please forward this information to appropriate vocational agriculture teachers and young farmer teachers in your respective region. Actually you are invited to participate too.
Although we have had the opportunity to train many teachers on the details of internal parasite management in sheep and goats, there are likely a good number who could benefit from training at a level which allows them to become qualified trainers themselves. On Wednesday, May 22 at Fort Valley State University, in connection with an Anniversary Conference of the American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control there will be a day-long Training the Trainer Workshop for teachers who could benefit from being qualified to train local producers and small ruminant owners. For more information on the training program details connect with www.wormx.org. We would welcome anyone in the Agricultural Education community to attend the two-day Anniversary Conference too.
