Foundation Alpaca Assessment Course

2 April 2014

26th, 27th & 28th September 2014, Tirley Gloucestshire

The British Alpaca Society Foundation Alpaca Assessment Course offers the following value to members:

- a thorough overview of the major fleece performance and conformational traits for both suri and huacaya alpacas.

  This enables delegates to:
- gain confidence to assess and verbally deliver fibre and conformational characteristics to other owners and potential customers.
- make informed selection decisions within their own herd, at shows and when buying stock in.
- gain the necessary information to make appropriate breeding choices.
- a great place to share information about all aspects of alpaca ownership with other enthusiastic alpaca owners both during the course and at the evening get together.
- an opportunity to visit the large alpaca farm that is hosting the course.
- gain valuable experience at handling and assessing a high number of alpacas of varying quality, sex and type.

This is offered as three modules which run consecutively, enabling candidates to attend all three or any combination.
To proceed to Alpaca Judge Stage 1, all three modules must be passed. The modules are Form and Function, Huacaya and Suri.
