VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - 4-H members in Indiana had the chance to learn about some farm animals Saturday during the alpaca and llama training clinic and the Vigo County fairgrounds.
The Vigo County 4-H Alpaca and Llama Club hosted the event.
Senior members were there to teach others everything they need to know about alpacas including basic nutrition, fiber quality, breeding and showmanship.
Members say it takes a lot of work to care for the animals but it’s worth it.
Ethan Branam says, "We'll help shear them, give shots, things like that. But, we also go out usually once, twice, maybe three times a week to train. They are very fun, very compatible and they are just very fun animals to be around."
Members of the club say they hope this becomes an annual event.
