Time for show season to get into full swing

The 2018 show season begins this weekend and it will be a wonderful spring to see a show while learning about alpacas and alpaca products.

Walking through the Process from a Member's Perspective

Many members have been discussing the ELD mandate on social media and contacting our office for updates. We are working with FMCSA and DOT to get more solid information and will be sharing with our members in the coming days. Meanwhile, some members have been sharing their experiences of working through the process and we will be sharing their experiences. Today's guest blog comes from Jennifer Hack with Triple H Ranch in Colorado.

Stay tuned for more updates and member experiences.
