Check out a video of the conference, venue and preconference tour.
The purpose of this conference is to provide an opportunity for veterinarians, researchers, educators, producers and support industries to share knowledge and ideas on improving and maintaining the health of sheep and goats, not just in Canada but around the world. Partnering of SRVO with the University of Guelph in this initiative and with support of the Sheep Veterinary Society of the UK as their quadrennial “European” meeting, provides the perfect opportunity to accomplish this.
Registration is still open - up to and including June 6, 2019. Our scientific programme is very exciting with 3 plenary talks, 9 keynote addresses, 79 oral presentations and 23 posters accepted from researchers, veterinarians from around the world.
The final programme will be posted by mid-May. We are also offering technical tours of farms and research stations. We guarantee there will be something for everybody with an interest in the health of sheep and goats.
