FAMACHA© EYE COLOUR TRAINING

FAMACHA is a system to assess goats or sheep for anaemia resulting from barber's pole worm.

The system is used (with other indicators) to make drenching decisions for individual animals and is suited to small herds or flocks of generally less than 50 individuals.

It is essential to score the colour in the correct place and a little supervised practice at a training day is a great start to get the colour right, matched against a FAMACHA card.
