The Advanced Animal Science class at MHS conducted a "fecal egg flotation" activity during our Lab today. The lab consisted of the examination of sheep fecies for the presence of internal parasite eggs. Students were able to identify one particular parasite egg present in the fecal specimen called Hoemonchus contortus or the Barberpole Worm which is a bloodsucking roundworm that can be very detrimental to small ruminants. This is a routine exam that veterinarians may do on occasion to many different species of animals. I think they enjoyed todays lab even though they were handling POOP!
