Dear friends,

It's that time already. Issue number 2 is here! It has been a busy month at Alpaca Angel Acres. The Fall Festival in Loveland Colorado is just about five weeks away. Cervato's and Hubble's training is progressing nicely and we are looking forward to their "debut" in the show ring. Mark your calendars for November 8th and 9th. Be sure and plan on visiting all the wonderful vendor booths. See the many products produced from the fiber of these curious calming animals. We hope to see you there!

An Alpaca Milestone ...

This year alpaca owners across the United States have reason to celebrate. No longer will alpacas be on the outside looking in. Agricultural farm animals will no longer consist only of cows, goats, sheep, horses and pigs. The Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA) along with the Alpaca Registry, Incorporated (ARI) and some very conscientious members of congress worked tirelessly to achieve our goal! Alpacas...exotic livestock? Read on...

Alpaca Facts...

  • Alpacas are not pack animals
  • Composted alpaca poop makes great fertilizer
  • Alpacas are herd animals and should always be kept with other alpacas
  • The Alpaca Registry recognizes 16 natural fleece colors
  • The retail value of processed fiber increases 50-200%
  • The average cost of hay, feed and supplemental pellets per alpaca yearly is about $150.00 and can vary up or down depending on farm locale

More Alpaca Facts in our next issue. Until next time have a wonderful October!

Sincerely,
