    The birth of cria is one of the most exciting times of the year. It can also a time of stress and anxiety, with alpaca owners hopeful for no birthing problems. Learning to address problems that may occur during delivery will give owners confidence as we enter the birthing season.

    Dr. Norm Evans will present a day-long seminar in neonatal care. The morning session will consist of lecture relating to pregnancy, nutrition and birth. The afternoon will include a "wet lab" with individual practice addressing dystocia and other potential birthing issues.
