How does a novice alpaca owner choose the right animals to buy?

In this podcast, we consider things like:

  • fleece animal qualities (fiber boys)
  • breeding stock qualities
  • show stock qualities
  • the importance of conformation and fleece
  • the concept of “breeding up” a female
  • why you don’t need a stud (but might want to buy one, anyway)

Here is a list of the alpacas we mentioned in the show with links to their pages on our website www.etfarms.com:
