A Little History:
The first issue of Alpacas Magazine was printed in 1990 by Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association (AOBA), one of the predecessors, of Alpaca Owners Association, Inc. (AOA). It was created as a publication to provide information and education to the alpaca industry. Through the decades, Alpacas Magazine has chronicled the evolution of the alpaca industry while capturing the heart and soul of the alpaca lifestyle.
Well-written, compelling stories, breath-taking photography, creative step-by-step instructions for fiber arts, breakthroughs in breeding and husbandry, the latest alpaca genetic information, and the most up-to-date industry news and scientific research are brought to your mailbox four times a year.
With readers and writers from around the world, Alpacas Magazine continues to be a leader in providing timely and useful information, whether you keep just a few alpacas as pets or run a large-scale breeding and fiber operation.
