Anyone planning on putting together a fall Market Sale in Alberta? I know the auctions are coming up but I so hate taking my birds to auctions...

Hmm, anyone have a parking lot central in Alberta? Often I have thought that would be all it would take. That and a little advertising.

Fall sale in Glen Park? Sound good. I'd be in as a seller Very Happy I did the first one and really enjoyed it.

One thing to keep in mind about having a sale at the end of September is POPWA is having their poultry sale on October 2. Some sellers who were at the Glen Park sale likely will be going to the POPWA one. The two might clash being too close together Question

But I do support a fall sale in general. Think it's a great idea.

I will attend if Lanaire Ranching will host it. If we run short of food we can always have a huge BBQ with alpaca.

no sorry, they are also good for meat.... although in some alpaca circles that doesn't make me very popular Embarassed it is very much like venison, very lean and no gamey taste. very excellant for ground or sausage

honestly I don't see what the issue is. down south where they are from that is how they are raised-- like a livestock but up here it is such a no-no. no different that eating lamb or sheep in my eyes....

I agree, no different from people eating sheep, or rabbits or for those of us who raise chickens but eat them also? I just try not to make pets out of those we do use - made that mistake with the last steer and now have no cattle on my property. Sad That being said, I do wear leather - be it sheep, pig or cattle.

Cheers,
Carol
