Description

Class Experience

The students will learn a brief history of camelids, world fiber production, alpaca animal science, management challenges and end products.  We will go step by step through the life cycle of an alpaca and the process of harvesting fiber and preparing it for sale.  No alpacas are ever injured or killed in alpaca fiber production, as this is sustainable animal agriculture.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Education from Texas A&M University and have taught agricultural science in the public schools.  My wife and I have raised alpacas since 2012.  We have found some creative ways to make things from alpaca fiber and have traveled to South America to learn more about the industry.
