      About our Worshops:
    Opportunities with Alpacas!
     
      “Opportunities with Alpacas” is a hands-on alpaca workshop presented by Drs. Ed and Ruthanne McCaslin of Promised Land Farm. Learn the basics of the alpaca business from two veterinarians who raise and love alpacas.

    This practical one-day small group workshop will start at 8:00a.m. and run until 6:00p.m.

    This fun and helpful day of alpaca learning costs $75.00 per person or $100.00 for two people from the same farm. Price includes lunch, snacks and handout materials.

    Registration will be limited so that we can give each of you as much individual attention as you need, especially during the hands-on portions of the day.

    Please respond quickly so that we can reserve a place for you on the weekend of your choice.

    Learn to Shear Alpacas
     
      Each seminar will last from 10a.m. to 3p.m. and will be limited to 4 participants so that everyone can get hands-on experience and individual instruction. The cost is $275 per person or $500 for two people from the same farm and includes a shearing manual, apron, gloves, snacks and lunch. All necessary equipment will be provided and there will be shears, etc. available for purchase if you wish. If you already have your own equipment, you may bring it and Mary Jane will show you how to adjust it for best results.

    Two alpacas will be shorn at each seminar, one by Mary Jane as a demo and the other by the 4 participants, each doing approximately 1/4 of the job. Shearing and skirting of show fleeces will be included. Most of the seminars will be done using huacayas, but a suri seminar or two will be scheduled if there is enough interest. There will be a reduced price of $450 for anyone who wants to attend both a huacaya and a suri seminar. Each attendee will receive a voucher for $275 that can be applied toward the purchase of any animal or breeding fee from Promised Land Farm.

    Fecal Workshops!
     
      Of course we can’t make you parasitologists in one day, but we can teach you to screen your herd for problems and how to work together with your vet when you find a problem. We will also teach you prevention and control techniques that will save you time and money and give you a healthier herd.

    Learn to do your own fecal screening tests, both a Modified Stoll’s Technique and a direct smear, and when to use each one. Bring your own microscope and centrifuge, if you have them, or use ours and learn what to look for when selecting your equipment. Cost includes a complete set of notes, a starter kit, a parasitology text book, lunch, snacks and follow-up support after the class is over.

    Cost: $350 per person or $500 for two people from the same farm
    Time: 9:00 am to 5:00pm
    Taught by Dr. Ed and Dr. Ruthanne
