2012 AO FALL EDUCATION EVENT

Location: Orangeville Fairgrounds, Orangeville, ON
Date: Friday October 26th to Sunday October 28th, 2012

Held in conjunction with Eastern CNASF Select Sale & Futurity
& the Alpaca Ontario Fall Fleece Show
Get ready for the LARGEST EDUCATION WEEKEND ever undertaken by ALPACA ONTARIO.


OVC Students/staff & Ontario/Eastern Quebec Veterinarians are invited to join the AO Education Weekend FREE of charge.
Guelph University: Students, interns and residents will be attending workshops, helping check animals in and working alongside the judges. This process could prove to be very helpful in training future vets and support staff in the care of alpacas.
Invite your farm vet to participate and all sessions are free of charge for vets.

Alpaca Ontario will be hosting a wine and cheese event in the front hall at the fairgrounds on Friday, October 27th after the last Education workshop. This will be a good opportunity to touch base with people from all parts of the industry.
