Live and Alpaca Alley Auctions

Higher value items will be auctioned off live during the Banquet Dinner on Friday night or online in the Alpaca Alley Auction. Do you have a time-share you would be willing to donate? A weekend at a bed and breakfast? Herdsire breeding? Live alpaca?

Herdsire Breedings and Live Alpacas Sought for National Show Fundraiser

The offerings at the Mazuri AOA National Alpaca Show presented by Flying Iron Ranch, Tierra Prometida Alpacas, and TXOLAN Alpaca Association will look a little different this year.

In an attempt to offer the best breedings to champion and future champion herdsires, as well as a few fabulous female alpacas, you will be able to bid at the Fundraiser Banquet and Auction sponsored by The Futurity by Celebrity Sales, live on Friday night and online at the Alpaca Alley Table Auction throughout the weekend.

But we need your support!

This is AOA’s only fundraising event. If you have a Champion Herdsire or an up and coming Herdsire that you’d be willing to donate a breeding to, please contact the AOA office or complete the donation form below.

Criteria:

Herdsires
  • We’d love each region to have one or two herdsires represented.
  • Seeking approximately eight (8) herdsires for the live banquet auction.
  • These herdsires ideally should come from the AOA Supremes and Color Championships from two+ years ago and/or be closed or standing with a fee of $3500 or more.
  • Additional herdsires that are up and coming will be offered at the Alpaca Alley Table (online) Auction. These herdsires may be great males that are not yet proven, enabling more farms to gain promotion for their males.
  • Alpaca Alley only herdsires will close on Sunday morning, enabling those who didn't win a bid at the Friday night auction to bid.
  • These animals will be online, so those not attending the national show can bid.
Live Alpaca Auction

Seeking no more than five (5) animals for the live Banquet Auction. The auction is conveniently located at the facility this year.

These animals will meet the following standards:
  • Must have won a championship in halter or fleece
  • Have no conformation issues
  • If 3 years +, must be proven

To donate an animal, owners will send a short video of the alpaca walking toward them, away from them, showing a side view and an up close fleece shot.

Owners will also provide a histogram.

Additional live animals may be offered at the Alpaca Alley Table Auction. They do not need to have won a championship.

Owners offering alpacas for auction will get 40% of the sale and AOA will retain 60%. OR, owners can receive an Auction Sponsorship in lieu of taking a percentage of the sale.

Alpaca Alley Table Auction only alpacas will close Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m., enabling those who didn't win a bid at the Friday night auction to bid.

These animals will also be online, so those not attending the national show can bid.

So what’s in it for you?

Great question! Your animal and farm will be promoted on the website with a link to your website or Facebook. You can also link to your herdsire’s or donated alpaca’s page.

You will get promotion on the AOA Facebook page, Instagram page, and National Show page, separate from the auction website. If donating a live animal and forgoing the percentage split, you will gain the additional benefits listed in the Auction Sponsorship.

We can't thank you enough for your help. Let's make this the best auction yet!
