1675 Observatory Dr
Great Lakes Alpaca Association
2018 Winter Seminar
January 27, 2018
Dr. Norm Evans received his DVM degree from Auburn University in 1968. He started a mixed practice which became a 5-person practice. He did embryo transfer in cattle for 8 years and has done camelids for 29 years. Since 1996, his practice has been 100% camelid. He is author of 3 editions of The Alpaca Field Manual. While retired from active practice, he still works full time with field research of how an alpaca’s fiber production is affected by environment, male and female genetic traits as well as nutritional influences as measured by the skin biopsy and histogram.
The seminar this year is being held at Lecture Hall 212 in the Animal Science Building at UW-Madison at 1675 Observatory Drive. We are holding the seminar there because we are offering veterinary students this seminar free of charge. Ticket information will be posted closer to the event date.
