- Animals: goats
- Animal Production: parasite control, grazing - multispecies, grazing - rotational
Commercial de-wormers are expensive and in time may become ineffective, and the farmer will explore whether multispecies grazing and forages with natural tannins will decrease internal parasites. This technique has been observed to decrease parasites in sheep, and the goal is to compare conventional grazing with multispecies and tannin-forage grazing to see whether there is a measurable herd-health and economic impact. The results will be disseminated through producer meetings and extension newsletters.
