Welcome to the 2nd Annual Advanced Alpaca Breeders Conference

Using Scientific Methods to Accelerate Your Breeding Program and Advance the Alpaca Fiber Industry

June 30 – July 2, 2017

In the 10 plus years that we have been part of this incredible industry, one consistent question has been asked of us more than any other. How do you sift through all the information/data available to make an informed breeding decision?  Do you rely on Histograms, Skin Biopsies, EPD’s, pedigree, crimp style, awards in the show ring? The list goes on and on.  Depending on who you ask, there are an unlimited number of answers to that question. Providing a solid insight into a number of the scientific tools available and then getting an in-depth understanding as to how successful breeders use these and/or other tools in their actual decision-making process is the purpose of this year’s conference.
The event will take place at Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch on the June 30th through July 2nd. Local wine and beer tasting and other specialties will be available to enjoy.

We are located 45 minutes from the Portland International Airport and 25 minutes from Salem. We are on the east side the beautiful Willamette Valley, between Molalla, Oregon (home of the Molalla Buckaroo on this same weekend) and Silverton, Oregon (The Garden City).
