HPRCS 3rd grade field trip

This time the weather cooperated, it was a beautiful day for a field trip!! All got to witness shearing an alpaca and got to lead an alpaca. They learned about how easy they are to take care of and also learned about the uses for the fiber and got to see some of the products that are made from the luxurious fiber. We hope all had fun while learning about the alpacas!!

We went to GWAS this weekend, this is the first time we have gone to this show. It is the biggest show we have ever gone to. It was a level five with over 800 alpacas! We only took 6 alpacas since it was a long trip and we wanted to give them plenty of room to be comfortable in the trailer.

Here is how they did, we are very happy with the results!!

Golden Elite - 1st place
Shareese - 2nd place
Reegan - 2nd place
Serena - 2nd place

Wisconsin Alpaca and Fiber Festival

We went to the show in West Bend Wisconsin this weekend. We didn't do as good as we hoped but some of the reason for that is that we have had dryer weather and the alpacas were full of dust since they love to roll in the dirt! :-)

Golden Elite - 2nd place
Shareese - 2nd place
Holly - 2nd place
Accoyo Summer - 3rd place
Amazing Grayce - 3rd place
Serena - 4th place
Navigator - 5th place

Iowa Lakes Community College Field Trip

Today we had a group of about 15 students from the vet tech program come to visit our farm. Once again, the weather did not cooperate and it was cold and windy! The questions were different with this group because they were more interested in the health aspect of raising alpacas. We also demonstrated the shearing process even though we will not start shearing the heard until May. Thanks to all who came, it's nice to see the younger generation interest in learning more about alpacas!

Dordt College Field Trip

Today we had a group of about 35 students come to learn about the environmentally friendly alpacas and their fiber. The weather was cold and breezy but they endured and got to feel the fiber on our alpacas before we moved into the garage to get out of the weather. It was great to hear so many questions about raising alpacas, it shows that they are truly interested in learning about these animals and the growing fiber industry. Thanks to everyone who came, we are happy to help spread the word about these amazing animals and their fiber!
