What an incredible point year AOA alpaca shows just concluded! There were 40 alpacas and 76 farms recognized in the halter section of the point award event. Autumn is in full swing and with that brings the return of AOA Halter Shows and a new season for point progress. The AOA Points Show Task Force and Board have updated and approved the rules for the Halter Point Program for 2023–2024.

The 2023–2024 points season started on June 1, 2023, and will close on May 31, 2024. The announcement of the Top Point winners will take place at the AOA National Education and Fiber Conference in July of 2024.

Shows are a great way to network, engage in your industry, give your farm visibility, socialize with new alpaca friends, and meet the public. If you are not showing but live near a show, consider volunteering. This is a great way to get involved and stay connected in the local alpaca community.
