    The Suri Symposium is the alpaca education event of the year! You don't want to miss it!

    T
    he 2017 Suri Symposium and All-Suri Fleece Show promises three full days of outstanding education and networking opportunities.


    General sessions and workshops will include education about fiber, breeding for the best fiber, birthing and neonatal care, pasture management, business planning, marketing, and understanding fiber analysis tools.


    Listen to what people have had to say about the Symposium:


    “Loved the schedule and educational opportunities. Loved 3 full days. Loved the new location in Loveland. Great facility. Best symposium in 5 years!”


    “Topics presented were exactly what I needed to learn about to help my alpacas and my farm.”


    “Excellent event. As a relatively new Suri owner/breeder I appreciate the vast amount of info and networking here.”


    “So glad we finally came. Have heard from others for a good time that was worth the $ and now I know it to be true.”


    The Symposium truly offers something for everyone! And then there is the fun! The annual Suri Auction is a blast, whether you buy or just drool!


    The Suri Symposium is not just limited to Suri Network members. We encourage and welcome Huacaya breeders, as well as people who have not yet purchased their first alpacas. It's a great learning opportunity for everyone, whether experienced or not!
