    Alpaca breeders are an incredibly friendly, helpful group of people.   They genuinely enjoy what they are doing, and they love the opportunity to talk about the alpaca business.  Although alpaca breeders have only been active in the United States since 1984, there are already numerous regional breeder organizations, show associations, monthly magazines like AlpacasŪ, and hundreds of ranches and farms throughout the country that are eager to provide you with any information you seek.
    In addition, there are shows featuring llamas and alpacas somewhere in your region almost every month.  They're a worthwhile, enjoyable experience.
    A few of our favorite links are listed below:

AOBA

This is a national organization that was founded to promote the alpaca industry and to support alpaca breeders. AOBA sponsors a national meeting every June in Colorado.  They also publish a quarterly magazine called AlpacasŪ.

The Alpaca Registry, Inc. registers all alpacas in the U.S.   Registered alpacas are blood-typed to confirm parentage. This serves to preserve and protect the alpaca herd in the U.S., and it is a comfort to buyers of alpacas to know with certainty what they are buying. The Alpaca Registry also screens and monitors all importations and assures that all imported alpacas meet stringent standards. The information in the Registry's database is available to breeders on request. Visit the Alpaca Registry's web site to learn more about what they do.

MaPaca

MaPaca is a cooperative group of alpaca breeders from the Mid-Atlantic states.  We are a diverse group with herd sizes ranging from 2 to over 200 alpacas.   On our farms you will find some of the most exquisite alpacas in the world in a rainbow of colors.  We have hundreds of huacayas and suris representing some of the most well-established bloodlines in the country with more than four generations of successful, well documented reproductive history!  Combine this with recent addition of exciting new breeding stock imported from Peru, Bolivia, and Chile, and you have a tremendous selection to begin your foundation herd or add that missing element to your existing herd.
