Alternative methods for worming livestock are more important than ever as parasite resistance becomes common.

This class talks about different parasites, management techniques and how to effectively use herbs to reduce dependence on chemicals and increase natural immunity. Participants will also learn about different herbs, their effectiveness and how to make herbal formulas that fit their farm. At the end of the workshop, there will be time for questions and answers.

Please bring pen & paper for your personal note taking. You are welcome to bring along a snack or lunch to enjoy during that time.
