Sheep and goat webinar Feb. 15

Purdue Extension Corner

Purdue University and Kentucky State University (KSU) will hold a free webinar for sheep and goat producers on Thursday, Feb. 15 from 7-9 p.m. EST. The theme of the program is animal health and the three bad “c’s” – 1) coccidia; 2) caseous lymphadenitis; and 3) caprine arthritis encephalitis.

Dr. Beth C Johnson, DVM with Kentucky Department of Agriculture will discuss caseous lymphadenitis – an economically important disease and how to prevent and control.
