Sponsored by Schering-Plough Animal Health and the Ward County NDSU Extension Service, cow-calf producers and feedlot owners will have the opportunity to have parasite levels for their herd tested free of charge by Don Bliss, veternarian and parasitologist with MidAmerica Ag Research, before the Beef Health Seminar is held in Minot Wednesday at the Knights of Columbus Club.
Limited to the first 25 producers, those who would like to participate need to bring eight golf ball-sized fresh (never-frozen) fecal samples to the Ward County Extension Service office, located in the Ward County Courthouse, on Monday or Tuesday. Testing will be conducted Wednesday and results will be shared at the Beef Health Clinic, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
Following a free beef dinner, three state and regional veterinarians will discuss a variety of health issues that impact cattle producers and will be available to address specific concerns from area producers. The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the Beef Health Seminar or the free parasite testing, contact Emily Tescher-Johnston at the Ward County Extension Service at 857-6444.
