  • Compared to most livestock in North America, alpacas are relatively new. First commercially imported in 1984, many people have seen alpacas on their favorite television shows or on the news, but have never met one in person.  
    On the weekend of Sept. 23, alpaca owners from across the United States and Canada will invite the public to come to their farm or ranch to meet their alpacas and learn more about these inquisitive, unique animals, the luxury fiber they produce and why the alpaca business is perfect for environmentally conscious individuals.

    They had white, red, blue and purple ribbons that counted up to 78 points to make them the winning family participating in the exhibit hall entries this year.
