Education

Welcome!

 

The Education Committee of VAOBA understands that research and

education are the most important steps one can take when starting or

continuing any livestock business. With this premise in mind, the

Education Committee, with cooperative efforts by our VAOBA members,

will promote and support the alpaca community via articles, seminars,

newsletters, networking, website, surveys, shows, and other

educational mechanisms as deemed appropriate and value enhancing.

 

Whether your farm is large or small, and regardless of your business

focus (owner, breeder, showing, fiber, products, other), the information

contained in this section is designed to provide value by enhancing your

knowledge of the alpaca business.

 

 In addition, it is our intention that this site will provide the general

public with information that will spark enthusiasm and interest in

alpacas, the alpaca lifestyle, general business models/opportunities for

successfully starting an alpaca farm, and links to existing VAOBA

farmers in Virginia.

 

Stay tuned as we will soon be adding a variety of educational materials!
