    FINALLY, We have details for Membership meeting.

    We are meeting on September 13th from 2-4p at Heritage Farm in Flora, In. and on Zoom. You have options. You may come in person with social distancing or sign in with Zoom.  We will be getting Zoom instructions out to you soon.

    We will have a short business meeting then Pamela Walker DVM will be speaking to us on Herd Health/Parasites/Etc. She will have handouts that we will provide online for your use during the meeting. She is very knowledgeable on camelids and has her own camelid practice in Ohio.

    We have missed seeing all of our alpaca friends. Please join us.

    Dr. Walker will be taking questions so compile yours to ask.

    We are postponing the membership meeting we had scheduled for July 25th.

    We were having trouble finding a speaker.  We have one for the future. We will see if we can schedule a meeting in August. I'll keep you posted as details appear. 

    Hope you and your animals are doing well.  Please contact us for information as needed. 

    Please let us know if you have any questions,concerns, or new ideas (projects) we can work with during our pretty much closed society. 

    Thanks Andy

    Dear Indiana Alpaca Association Member,

     

    My name is Lila Beghtel, and I live in Anderson. I am a 13 year old homeschool student and I show my alpaca, Syd, in 4-H every year. One of the requirements for our county‚Äôs 4H program is that all members in our club complete a poster educating the public about llamas or alpacas. In the past, I have completed poster projects about dying fiber, shearing my animal, creating a new home for an alpaca, commercial processing of alpaca fiber, and alpaca care around the United States (that one won Sweepstakes at the Indiana State Fair!). 

    This year I have decided to make a poster showing the 16 pure solid standard colors of an alpaca.  I am writing to ask for your help in obtaining samples of each of these 16 colors. If you have pure standard colors of alpacas, could you please send fiber samples to help me achieve this goal?  Samples do not need to be large, but do need to be consistent with the color key listed below. I will be working on my poster in January, so I would love to have samples of each color received by then. Each farm that sends a sample will be recognized in the resources portion of the poster.  Thank you so much for helping me complete this project.  

    Sincerely,                         

    Lila Beghtel

    I'm sorry but we need to reschedue the general membership meeting for the beginning of 2018.  It has been a busy season.  We will meet on February 3rd in the Indy area. The time frame will be 11am - 2pm. We will discuss ideas and goals for 2018, fiber events and projects, and hopefully an upcoming meeting with another group in the future.  Put the date on your calendar and let's have a good turnout to help with goals for our organization.  Hope your alpacas are keeping warm and dry. Stay tuned for more information.  Your IAA Board
