North West Camelid Foundation (NWCF)
From its beginning in 1987, the Foundation s mission has grown into a concerted effort to support the camelid medical research at Oregon State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and to provide funds to maintain the herd of llamas and alpacas available to them. The NWCF is very proud to have played a role in the outstanding reputation OSU has obtained over the years for their camelid research and the valuable opportunity they provide for veterinary students to have hands-on education in that field.

They join together to further their knowledge of farm and ranch related issues both in the market place and in agricultural practices.
