NSW Alpaca Youth

About us

The NSW Alpaca Youth Group is the first established and longest running alpaca youth group in Australia. Since 2012 the NSW Alpaca Youth Committee have been working to encourage and develop youth involvement to create a brighter future for the Australian Alpaca Industry.

The NSW Youth Group is dedicated to equipping it’s members with the tools to become hard working, enthusiastic and knowledgeable members of the alpaca industry. We cater for all experience levels and interests – from first time Young Parader participants to stimulating members interests in meat and fleece production, general farm practice and all aspects of animal husbandry.

We are committed to learning about the whole of the alpaca! This includes; husbandry, reproduction, breeding, anatomy, nutrition, fleece and meat production. We invite our members to gain a wide range of skills through our youth camps and workshops. Skills such as; show preparation, birthing, pasture management and fencing.
