Last week, Prince Edward Island hosted an animal health and nutrition conference, VetHealth Global, that featured leading international companies and presenters talking about the latest trends and innovations in the industry. This event offered an excellent showcase for local bioscience companies focused on animal and fish health and organizations like the National Research Council and Atlantic Veterinary College. The event was covered by Animal Pharm, a leading publication out of London, England, that offers animal health and nutrition business news and analysis.
I worked at the conference managing the business partnering meetings and their attending reporter happened to mention to me that he was looking for photos of animals in a typical rural Island setting. I told him that I had a collection of photos that had been featured in a recent book on Clyde River, so he requested that I send them along. They ended up using eight of the photos. You can click here to view the slide show of Clyde River animals that are now famous on a global scale. They include Dixon’s cows and chickens, Livingston’s cows, MacPhee’s horses and my dog Max. Scenics include Beer’s farm and Lorne MacLean’s potato field. The story is entitled “How an animal health hub is developing on Canada’s “Million-Acre Farm”.
