Facial Eczema pasture spore monitoring program

This program helps dairy farmers keep track of Facial Eczema danger levels and make an informed choice as to the Facial Eczema strategy for their own farm.

When local pasture spore counts are trending upwards of 20,000 spores/gram and weather conditions look favourable for sporulation, monitor your own farm's pasture spore counts week to week and implement Facial Eczema control and prevention strategies.
