Special activities are planned for the youngest visitors, including guessing games, a petting zoo, and pony rides. A shepherd will demonstrate how a flock of sheep can be herded, and a falconer will show interested visitors how falcons are trained to hunt. The various demonstrations and tours will include watching a farrier at work and touring the Equine Clinic and the Small Animal Clinic. In addition, various breeds of cattle, water buffalo, pigs, and piglets can be seen up close. By talking with experts, visitors will be able to find out about the proper care and feeding of animals, as well as diseases and their diagnosis. There will also be a number of lectures on specific topics of current interest.
Visitors are invited to attend this open day event, to both watch and participate. Besides the numerous interesting and informational activities, there will be stands with BBQ, ice cream, and cold drinks, as well as a courtyard cafe.
