Furthering knowledge and education in calf management is a top priority for Veal Farmers of Ontario (VFO). VFO’s core focus on calf care promotes viable dairy, veal, and dairy-beef industries. VFO is once again organizing the Building the Foundation: Dairy and Veal Healthy Calf Conference, the eighth biennial event which marks sixteen years in healthy calf promotion. This year’s agenda boasts an impressive program with some of the most respected experts in the field of calf management. As part of this exciting event, we will once again be hosting the popular Vet Night, an educational and networking opportunity designed exclusively for bovine veterinarians.
Healthy Calf Conference (HCC) and Vet Night bring together the dairy, veal, and dairy-beef industries to discuss some of the challenges in calf raising to find solutions for raising strong, healthy calves. The HCC has a strong following among calf raisers in Ontario, with our last conference in 2016 garnering positive reviews from our 350 attendees. With the excitement already building for this year’s event, the 2018 conference is an event you don’t want to miss. Being involved provides the opportunity to ensure that your company reaches the most progressive and engaged dairy, veal, and dairy-beef producers in Ontario.
HCC will once again be hosted in two locations to reach the maximum number of Ontario producers. This year, HCC is on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 in Stratford, Ontario and Thursday, November 29th, 2018 in Maxville, Ontario. Each event will run from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. Vet Night is 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm in Stratford on November 26th, 2018. Title, Platinum, and Gold level sponsors are invited to attend this exclusive evening to network with top bovine veterinarians.
To keep costs feasible for producers, the cost of attending the conference has not increased this year. This ensures that our sponsors are able to reach a large audience. Sponsors are key to the success of HCC and help make the conference a top learning and networking opportunity for calf-raisers. HCC is the premier opportunity to share your company’s innovative calf care solutions with this receptive market.to reserve your spot. Payment can be made by cheque or credit card. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your company’s participation further, please feel free to contact the office.
Thank you for your continued support.
