Alpacas of Western Oregon (AAWO)
AAWO is pleased to announce that renowned alpaca fleece senior judge, Cheryl Gehly will be conducting a special fleece Evaluation Clinic on June 1st in Sherwood, OR.
This seminar will focus on the importance of uniformity of micron as the primary fleece consideration in breeding decisions. We will explore how to identify uniformity within the prime blanket area, as well as establishing measurable components to be tracked annually. Participants should bring fleeces from their herd to evaluation during the seminar. Decision-making strategies based on generational gain will be emphasized. There will also be a brief introduction to fleece evaluation and how to skirt a fleece before we go into a deep dive on how to evaluate uniformity in a fleece.
The clinic will be held at the Marjorie Stewart Senior Community Center in Sherwood, OR at 21907 SW Sherwood Blvd. The clinic will run from 8:30 am to 5 pm with a short lunch and a couple of breaks. It is free to AAWO members and $85 for nonmembers. Questions can be sent to email@example.com. Seminar applications can be downloaded and submitted from the AAWO website: http://alpacafarmsoregon.org
