General Information

Sarah Busby has accepted our invitation to judge at Egmont A&P Show 2018.  We are expecting another strong line-up of exhibitors from Manawatu, King Country, Waikato and of course Taranaki.  This year the showgrounds will be open to the public on Friday and Saturday.  Fleece judging will be held on Friday and breed judging on Saturday. 

Pens will be set up in the TSB Arena (same as 2017).  Alpacas can be penned anytime on Friday afternoon, but preferably after 5pm to avoid traffic congestion. 

Penning deadline is expected to be 9.30 am on Saturday, allowing same-day travel from Manawatu and King Country.

Because of Mycoplasma bovis, there will be no cattle sharing facilities with alpacas in 2018. With more space available there will be both an outdoor alpaca show ring and an indoor show ring, to allow for bad weather. The Taranaki cluster group is planning to make the most of the larger facilities to erect a marquee outside the TSB Arena in order to feature alpaca fleece products and garments for sale. Also planned by the Creative Fibre group is a competition display for articles made using alpaca fleece to be voted on by the public. The "People's Choice" winner will take the prize. With this extra activity it is expected greater numbers of the public will come over to visit the alpacas."
