Important Illinois Dept of Ag Entry Requirements

The state of Illinois Department of Agriculture requires that all alpacas entering Illinois must be accompanied by an entry permit issued by the Department, and a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection issued by an accredited veterinarian within 30 days of entry.

Entry permit numbers are available by having the veterinarian office call the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding state holidays, at 217-782-4944 for an entry permit number. Permits may also be obtained online at the Illinois Department of Agriculture.

Mats or Stall Bedding Required

Because of the slick flooring at this year’s venue, mats or other stall bedding will be required to protect the welfare of the alpacas. Pellets will be provided as a base layer for your stall and is included in your stall fee. Mats will be available for purchase at the show from Stevens Llama Tique and Light Livestock. If you would like to pre-order a mat, it will be available for pick-up at the show.

Host Hotel Information

The host hotel, Pere Marquette by Marriott, is conveniently located across the street and connected to the show venue via a skywalk. To secure special event pricing, book your hotel accommodations by February 26.
