Register now for a webcast on anthelmintic resistance that will take place Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. Central Time.

This Webinar, hosted by Bovine Veterinarian and sponsored by Merck Animal Health, will feature international cattle parasite expert Dr. Louis Gasbarre, and will be moderated by parasite expert Dr. Bert Stromberg.

Anthelmintic resistance in the U.S. cattle population was first identified in 2004 by the USDA. The 2009 NAHMS survey identified potential resistance in cattle in several states. Research has indicated a potential shift in the paradigm of parasites in pasture cattle with a new most-prevalent pasture parasite identified. This webcast will discuss changes in the pasture paradigm and discuss the economic impact of parasites that have developed resistance to popular dewormers. New treatment protocols to manage parasite resistance will be discussed.

Included in this free 1-hour webcast will be a live question and answer period with Dr. Gasbarre.
