Interested in advancing your herd quality and furthering your knowledge of fleece, color genetics and breeding selection factors? Join America’s Natural Fiberworks, Blessed Criations and KB Alpacas from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to discuss “Breeding for an End in Mind”.
This seminar is ideal for all alpaca breeders striving to advance their herd quality (fleece, color, and phenotype). You’ll learn about fleece characteristics and how those characteristics influence the end products such as yarn. We will also discuss getting the colors you desire and will introduce a process to objectively evaluate animals. We will conclude by putting our discussion to application with a breeding selection exercise. Attendees will leave with an advanced understanding of how to breed for an end in mind-genetic advancement.
Cost: $40 per person, $75 for two or more from the same farm. Continental breakfast and lunch are included.
