Rushmere Alpacas

Jo joins the HoE alpaca group committee

Today was the Heart of England Alpaca Group AGM. It was really encouraging to hear about the successful events the group has hosted - and it even made a profit this year which can be used to underwrite future events and shows. I'm now officially on the committee and the education representative.

Towcester Vet talk

After the AGM we heard from Rebecca Edwards of Towcester veterinary practice who gave a summary of information picked up form the Camelid veterinary Society conference. Some interesting items about when to give cloistridial vaccinations to cria, some warnings about certain wormers plus information about dental abscesses and how to treat them.

Relaxing with fellow breeders

Finally an excellent meal in the company of other breeders. I sat next to Philippa Wills from Great House Alpacas who sold us Agenda so it was a chance to catch up there.
