New Zealand and Ontario Connect ...July 2006

New_Zealand_groupEquine Guelph and the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) extended a warm welcome to all attending the Standardbred Industry Meet & Greet, July 20, 2006. Representatives from New Zealand's Standardbred industry stopped for a visit on their extensive tour of farms in the area. This was an exciting opportunity for both the Ontario and New Zealand Standardbred industries to connect with one another plus enjoy a tour of the Ontario Veterinary College, which included demonstrations of the MRI unit, current reproduction research and highlights from Equine Guelph’s Education Program.

The group learned a great deal about each other's industries, plus commented on the resources available for the equine industry at the University of Guelph. The day ended with a generous invitation to visit the beautiful Standardbred farms in New Zealand if the opportunity arises.
