A Series Of Webinars On Anthelmintic Resistance In Ruminants: Challenges And Solutions
17th June, 2021 15h16
Anthelmintic resistance is a growing concern in the control of helminth infections in ruminant livestock worldwide
This is the first of a series of three free presentations provided by the COMBAR (COMBatting Anthelmintic Resistance in ruminants) and Vetstream Vetacademy that will update on the current situation of anthelmintic resistance in sheep, cattle and goats in Europe, its driving factors and economic impact. It will cover the activities of the COST Action COMBAR and provide room to discuss with participants solution routes towards sustainable control approaches that preserve the efficacy of anthelmintic drugs.
Through joint collaboration COMBAR aims to pave the way towards a transnational, multi-actor initiative to achieve sustainable helminth control approaches and develop new solutions.
The first webinar “Anthelmintic Resistance in Ruminants: Challenges and Solutions” will be held at 1 pm on June 30th. Registration can be made via this link
Mark Johnston (CEO of Vetstream) said: “We are delighted to partnering with the highly respected Johannes Charlier and COMBAR for this really important series. With Vetlexicon Bovis we are very focussed on providing point-of-care information about the veterinary care of cattle and other ruminants. The sustainable use of anthelmintics is an area of growing importance and it is important to stay up to date with current scientific insights”.
Johannes Charlier (Chair of COMBAR) added: “Over the last years, COMBAR has built a scientific network to exchange knowledge and practices to fight anthelmintic resistance and make helminth control sustainable. Now it is time to connect with veterinary practitioners across Europe to discuss how some novel insights, tools and practices can find an application on the farms.”
