Events

Each year - usually in the autumn - the BVCS organises a conference. We normally invite a leading authority from around the world as a guest speaker, and the programme may include practical sessions as well as discussions and debate. 

There is also time for members to present interesting cases from their own experience, research findings and other reports. 

The conference includes a social programme with plenty of opportunity to talk about our favourite topic - camelids!
2017 Conference details can be found HERE!

 

UPCOMING EVENT ORGANISED BY AULD MILL ALPACAS

Advance notification of a camelid handling workshop for vets and vet nurses to be held at Auld Mill Alpacas in Moray on Friday 31 March 2017.

We plan to start at 7pm and to finish up with stovies afterwards, from about 9pm. To cover costs, the charge for attendance will be £10 per person.

 

The syllabus will include : • Stressors • Penning • The Approach • Containment • Mouth Exams • Feet Lifting • Blood Sampling (including the one-person "Buckeye Blood Draw") • Group Management.
