American Institute for Goat Research (AIGR), Langston University, held the Annual Goat and Hair Sheep Field Day in May. The AIGR hoped that Field Day would resume as usual in 2021. however, due to lingering and even spiking COVID 19 infections in Oklahoma and because of the slow pace of vaccinations in early 2021, the 2021 Goat and Hair Sheep Field Day was not held in person but held virtually via Zoom. The theme was “Goat and Lamb Cookery & More” and took place in smaller 2-to-4-hour segments spread over several weeks. Among the sessions, the two most popular workshops entitled “Internal Parasites and FAMACHA training in Small Ruminants” and “Goat Nutrition and LINC” were recorded and uploaded to the Langston University Ag YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/taglu01.
Among those who attended the parasite workshop, more than 20 people worldwide received a FAMACHA certificate and a FAMACHA card. If you are interested in being certified, you can still do it by fulfilling the following requirements.
Among the workshop videos, the “Primer on Parasites” has been highlighted in Sheep & Goat magazine’s (www.ranchmagazine.com) in June 2021 issue (Volume 29, No.5).
