ALPACA 2016 BREEDERS CLINIC
Friday January 29th or 3 Day Clinic Jan 29-Jan 31
Instructor: Deb Yeagle, Ohio
AN OPPORTUNITY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS !
When you first saw alpaca and asked questions did you understand anything people were saying about the fleece? When you decided to have babies did you understand anything people told you about your breeding choices? When you decided to use the fiber, did you have a clue what to do with each grade – or even what grade it was? Don’t own alpaca yet but w
ondering how to select for your wants and desires? Then this the opportunity you won’t want to miss.
Your instructor – Deb Yeagle has been in the business longer than AOA has existed, owns alpaca and llama and has judged nationally at various types and levels of shows. Started in the sheep business before unique fiber evolved in the US! A chance to learn from a retired educator who can teach you about fiber, conformation, performance, fiber arts and maybe even this business is a unique opportunity. She’s been there when the imports started coming in and has seen the industry evolution – and yes !! she knows the “whos who” in our industry. At a time when people are trying to understand this business don’t miss learning from someone who’s been there, done that! Right in your back yard — Florida!
This 3 day clinic is planned for Judges who “want to be” but what’s the best part? The first day of teaching for judges is also great information for alpaca owners who want to answer those tough questions. It’s a Breeders Clinic !
Yes ! you can take only one day of the clinic for $75.00 ! OR you can learn like the judges learn through a 3 day clinic ! AAAAAHHH ! “But I don’t want to ”do” shows” ! “OH but I know people who have taught me”. In this industry you can never learn enough and this is just one more avenue. Do you know that many, many of the big breeders in the alpaca industry didn’t become judges but have taken the judges clinic? That’s how they learned and you can learn too !!!!
The breeders’ clinic will be a ‘hands-on’ day to help you, as the breeder, be able to decide the finer points to look for in your alpaca breeding herd.
Bring a fleece if you like to skirt and evaluate or send Deb an email to help her compile material for you so you can have individualized learning.
