This is a one-day workshop for one to three participants at Evidence Based Worming’s own training room on Hindmarsh Island, South Australia. Everything is provided, but participants are encouraged to bring sample/s of their own horses’ faeces to enable you to gain key, benchmark faecal egg count information for your horse/s.
While participants will learn about the range of equine intestinal parasites having an impact on their horses, this workshop places particular emphasis on small Strongyle worms (Cyathostomins) and the problem of their increasing resistance to chemical anthelmintics. The workshop provides an evidence-based approach to managing the problem of resistance by ensuring participants become proficient in undertaking equine faecal egg counts as an additional pasture management strategy. The workshop focuses on gaining practical, hands-on skills so that participants leave with the knowledge and confidence to undertake faecal egg counts for their own horses at their own premises.
