Combatting anthelmintic resistance in ruminants: options for the future

COMBAR Final Conference

Cattle, sheep and goats are parasitised by various helminth species. These pathogens are important production-limiting diseases of grazing ruminants in Europe and are mainly controlled through grazing management and the strategic use of anthelmintics. Today, anthelmintic resistance (AR) has become a global threat for effective parasite control and rentable livestock farming. The COST Action COMBAR aimed at coordinating research at the European level to find solutions for the AR problem. The action works in a structure of 3 working groups: (1) Diagnosis; (2) Socio-economic aspects and (3) Integrated control.

During this final conference, COMBAR will look back on what they have achieved and summarize the current knowledge. But above all, the Action will look forward and investigate what are the options for the future to achieve sustainable helminth control and how we can maintain the established network and critical mass. This will be done alongside the themes of the 3 workings groups and to achieve a broad and general discussion with the actors involved: farming organisations, veterinarians, medicines industry, researchers and decision makers.

Register here before March 1. Please note this is a physical meeting. A registration fee of 50 euros per person will be collected on site (cash only).
