ASGA Teatime: Managing Parasites in a Solar Grazing System with Andrew Weaver

July 18, 2023

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Location: Online

Parasites are one of the greatest challenges in a grazing system. The lack of dewormer effectiveness has resulted in the need for alternative parasite management strategies. These alternatives must be utilized in an integrated fashion for effective parasite control. Strategies may include environment-based approaches as well as animal-based approaches.

For Teatime, we've invited Dr. Andrew Weaver (NC State) to discuss parasite management with us. Dr. Weaver will highlight parasite biology and host-parasite interactions in order to provide context for parasite management. He'll give us details on various parasite management strategies available and how they can be implemented in a solar grazing system.
