Seminars & Workshops

For the GENERAL PUBLIC and Alpaca Owners

Two Classrooms at the venue will be open and they'll feature the following:

What’s an Alpaca, and What on Earth Are They Good For??? 

 Presented by Dave & Teri Grembi, Point of View Alpacas, Mt. Sidney, VA

The classroom will be open for the general public, people who are curious about these amazing animals, and people who are trying to decide if becoming an alpaca owner is right for them. There will be a continuously playing video intended to help those not so familiar with alpacas to develop an awareness of alpacas by providing some basic fun facts, develop an understanding of the alpaca lifestyle, and briefly explore some business opportunities associated with alpaca ownership. Guaranteed to give the attendees an appreciation of the alpaca, and the quality of their fleece, and guaranteed to make you SMILE! 

Additionally, the classroom will be frequently staffed with a VAOBA member Alpaca Farmer! Live person to answer real questions. The schedule will be posted.

Ask the Vet 

Staffed by the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, Virginia Tech 

The classroom will be open to alpaca owners wishing to discuss health and wellness of alpacas. This is geared towards those attending the show; however, those contemplating alpaca ownership are certainly welcome to come ask the vet about the health and hardiness of alpacas!
