In this interactive museum experience, explore the fascinating world of food preservation both at home and in larger scale operations.

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. As Canadians across the nation reflect on the war to end all wars, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum will showcase one of the conflict’s forgotten stories — the War’s horses and the veterinarians of the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps who cared for them. Life for horses in the War was hard. They often lived outdoors, subject to the elements in dirty, wet environments. At times, water and food were scarce. Fear and stress were high, and not only were horses threatened by shellfire, but disease was rampant. With artifacts from the C.A.V. Barker Museum of Canadian Veterinary History, this exhibition explores how the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps worked to prevent and treat disease and injury among horses used during the First World War.
