Alpaga Québec 2024 Show Results


Farm visitors often ask what all the ribbons displayed in our boutique's entrance are all about! Each year, we participate in different alpaca shows with some of the best subjects within our herd. Last weekend was the Alpaga Québec Association's spring halter show, one of the biggest alpaca show in Eastern Canada! There was over 20 different farms and more than 100 alpacas from all over Eastern Canada that participated in the event.




Our two "Best Head" entries, Tofino (left) and Salvation (right).

Salvation won the 2024 Best Head Award in a though class of 13 entries!


In a halter show like the one held last weekend, alpacas are walked into a show ring and evaluated by a certified alpaca judge. Evaluations are based on both conformation traits as well as fibre traits. Each alpaca competes against other alpacas of the same age, sex and colour and are ranked by the judge according to the sum of positive traits observed. This allows us to see and appreciate what other breeders have produced and also have our own alpacas evaluated to see how our breeding program is coming along. It is also a fun yearly gathering for alpaca breeders that come together and talk all things "alpaca".


To say we are delighted with our 2024 results would almost be an understatement! We’re back from what was a very successful weekend with a few surprises along the way!
