This Year’s Speakers
Dan and Dale Goodyear – We are excited to have Dan and Dale at our conference! They spent many years sharing their love of llamas…and fortunately for us, continue to do so! Until fairly recently, Dan and Dale Goodyear, Berry Acres Llamas in PA, were among the largest llama breeders in the U.S. For nearly 20 years, Dan and Dale bred some of the finest animals in the country. They produced Llamallennium and Berry Picking, two production sales held at their farm designed to celebrate the joys of llama ownership and to share the results of their breeding program. They’re retired now but they still love talking about llamas, sharing all that they learned, and encouraging others.
John Mallon – John will change your life and your relationship with your animals. The Mallon Method employs common sense and logic to build trust between owner and llama or alpaca. We are so excited to have him!
Tami Lash – Tami is certified llama and alpaca judge and fleece judge. She also judges local 4-H llama shows, and helps with clinic instruction. We are thrilled to have Tami share her expertise with judging, performance classes, and more!
Kristy Brown, DVM – Renowned camelid vet, Kristy will come to us from Brownderosa Llamas in Wisconsin, also home to Leon Valley Veterinary Services, a large animal clinic specializing in camelid medicine, surgery, and reproduction services. We are privileged to have her share her expertise with us!
Judy Ross – Judy is an ALSA and ILR-SD Fleece Judge. Her experience with everything fiber – from beginning to end – will be an inspiration to all of us who want to better understand, and work with, our camelid fiber!
This is YOUR opportunity to SHINE! We all love taking photos of our llamas and alpacas, and this is a wonderful way to share our lives with camelids with each other! It’s also an easy and fun way to support the conference. Enter the 2013 Photo Contest by sending in your photos by October 25, 2013. Get the details here.
