VFDCB Cosponsoring Breeder Excellence Seminar at VA Tech 10/14

Breeder Excellence Seminar

October 14. 2017          8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The VFDCB is proud to cosponsor this outstanding seminar with the VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine and hope to see many of our member clubs’ breeders there!

If the previous Breeder Excellence seminar at the vet school was any indication, this is going to be well worth the trip to Blacksburg! I attended the spring seminar and can honestly say I learned more there than at any other meeting in recent years. If you’re serious about breeding, you need to be there. Details are below and you can register online through Friday. After that, just give them a call.
