The Yorkshire Alpaca Group are holding a series of events in the next few months and we’ll be publishing our events calendar soon. If you are NOT already a YAG member, then we are offering people who have NOT been members in the past a VERY special offer – Join now and your first years membership is FREE! Membership fees (Per household) are £ 25 a year for Breeders and £10 for non breeders/pet owners/people without alpacas. Please go to if you want to join. With all that we have coming up, being a member is definitely worthwhile!

We are starting of with a series of 3 Events on Zoom to help you to think about your breeding decisions and to talk about the “practicalities” of mating.
Now is the time of year that you will be making those all important breeding decisions; with a gestation of over 11 months, it’s a long time to wait for your cria and the decisions on which male to mate with each female are of vital importance to your herd. Join BAS Judge and highly successful alpaca breeder Barbara Hetherington for 2 one hour sessions that will help to guide your breeding decisions; the first will focus on Conformation and the 2nd on Fibre.
A couple of weeks later (20th July), Liz Barlow (Former Judge and Breeder) will be talking about the practicalities of the mating process; the different “types” of stud service; the alpaca reproduction processes etc
All the sessions will start promptly at 19.00 and so please log in from 18.50. The zoom link will be sent to you once your donation/fee has been received.
