FAMACHA© (printer friendly copy)

FAMACHA© is a novel idea for the treatment and control of Haemonchus contortus (Barber's Pole worm) in goats and sheep. FAMACHAŠ measures levels of anemia or blood loss (not fecal egg counts) and treatment decisions are based on these levels. The system is available only through veterinarians who may train producers to receive certification to use the system.
