BAS National Show 'Outstanding Success'

29 March 2017

This Showcase of the best of British animals and fibre was an outstanding success and a true flagship event for the UK alpaca industry.

The two day show which attracted over 560 alpacas from a record 100 exhibitors was held at the International Centre in Telford received almost universal praise, with BAS members and visitors fully supporting the event.

The BAS would like to thank all those who sponsored the event and helped make the show such a success.

A special thankyou to the National Show judges, Rob Bettinson who co-judged the Huacaya and Suri females with Amanda VandenBosch (USA), Nick Harrington-Smith who co-judged the Huacaya and Suri males with Peter Kennedy (AUS).
