Held on the same weekend as the Royal Melbourne Poultry Show, both the Royal Melbourne Alpaca and Alpaca Fleece Shows will be held at Melbourne Showgrounds. Entry is free and the public are invited to see some of the finest alpacas from around Australia on display.
Entry numbers are up 60% on last year, and the internationally accredited judge, Ms Jude Anderson from the USA and her esteemed co-judge, Mr Peter Kennedy from Taggerty in Victoria, will preside over the weekends judging.
Alpaca breeders and the public are invited to attend the Show and the seminar entitled “Alpaca Industry and innovations in the USA” held directly after lunch on Saturday 12 July in the judging ring, Building 4. During the seminar both judges will share their international and Australian alpaca experiences.
The RASV acknowledges the hard work of the RASV Alpaca Committee, headed by Ms Fiona Martin, and recognises the support of all breeders in making this years’ show a success.
