Island Alpaca Farm will host their full day seminar with Dr. Cheryl DeWitt for a most invaluable hands-on experience for all breeders or soon to be breeders!

Class Summary: This clinic will be comprised of a morning lecture with a power-point presentation, to cover female reproduction/breeding; reproductive anatomy and physiology, breeding and pregnancy diagnosis options, gestational development, care of the pregnant dam, normal and abnormal criation and care of the newborn as well as the high-risk cria.

The afternoon will include a "hands-in" "wet-lab" using uterine simulators, will challenge registrants to diagnose the contents of the uterus, discuss a proposed delivery plan, identify and correct dystocias to deliver the cria safely. Emergency training, and a lot of fun!
