The University of Minnesota will host “Cria Care and Biosecurity—A Strategy for Camelid Farms—Challenges and Best Practices,” on Feb. 28. The conference, designed for veterinarians, veterinary technicians and alpaca and llama owners, will be led by Claire Whitehead, BVM&S, MS, FHEA, MRCVS, Dipl. AVIM (large animal).

Dr. Whitehead grew up in the United Kingdom, developing a passion for alpacas on the family farm. In May 2011, she established a private practice running a camelid-only referral and consultancy practice and runs courses for vets and owners/breeds on camelid health and reproduction. She is currently building a new camelid-focused facility to be opened later this year.

The conference will discuss biosecurity issues, disease prevention, neonatal mortality and angular limb deformities, among other topics.
