by Laetitia Benador |

The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and UC Agriculture Natural Resources Cooperative Extension are conducting research on parasite management in organic livestock production. 

Producer input is crucial and highly valued! If you are a producer of cattle, sheep, and/or goats who is certified organic, transitioning to organic, or utilizing organic practices, we want to hear from you.

  1. What dewormer drugs do you use and how effective are they?
  2. What integrated parasite management practices do you implement and how effective are they?

Please fill out this survey by April 15, 2023.  It will take approximately 10–15 minutes. All responses are anonymous and no identifying information will be collected.

Please forward this survey to other livestock producers you know! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the survey, please contact Teresa Miranda at  or the principal investigators (Dr. Alda Pires,, and Dr. Noelia Silva del Rio,

CCOF’s Meat Matters campaign seeks solutions to the challenges organic livestock producers face. CCOF members have identified parasite management as one barrier to raising organic livestock profitably, and we welcome hearing your experiences with parasite management and any other challenges related to organic livestock production.
