Alpaca breeders manning their booths at one of Canada's largest agriculture shows, the Canadian Western Agribition, in Regina, Saskatchewan identified a real need to have a show in this venue. Over supper one night at Agribition and a subsequent couple of conference calls, this group of breeders met to propose a name, goals, structure and budget ideas. The first general meeting was called on February 27, 1999 in Saskatoon, SK. About 36 breeders had been identified in Saskatchewan at that time and it was very encouraging to see about 28 of them represented at this meeting.
With a great amount of enthusiasm, the Saskatchewan Alpaca Breeders Network was formed. The AGM (Annual General Meeting), held in February or March, is a great venue for networking opportunities and includes informative presentations from organizations involved in various aspects of the alpaca industry. If you would like to contribute you are welcome to help any of the committees: Membership, Promotion, Education, and Events.
