cute lambs in springThere’s a killer on the loose. It’s called the barber pole worm. It’s an internal parasite. It can hurt the performance of, or even cause the deaths of, small ruminants like sheep and goats. And traditional methods aren’t enough to control it, says Rory Lewandowski, an educator with CFAES’s OSU Extension outreach arm. He’ll share new barber-pole-worm-battling strategies at the Feb. 9-11 annual conference of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association. “Co-existing with a Killer: Small Ruminant Parasite Management,” Session V, 1:30 to 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 11. Complete conference schedule. Presenters from Ohio State.
