As you can see to the left, the state of Iowa and the Iowa Llama Association stay very busy with no less the 6 llama shows within our borders throughout the year.  ILA members volunteer time and compete at all of these events as well as many others across the US.  At the ILA, we work hard and we play just as hard.

Hope everyone is getting ready for another show season. Don’t forget to get your crias registered soon. 

Above are the links to the information on the Heartland Llama Show. Same place, same time as last year. Be sure to register on the ILR website and then send your check to me. The show IS live on the website. In order to use the show manager successfully, if you don’t put your entries on the website, then I have to. By you using the site, I only charge you $3 per animal instead of $5. I would appreciate if more people would use the program. Instructions for doing so are in the link below. Call me if you have any problems and I would be happy to walk you through it. 

Blocks of 10 rooms have been reserved at both the Americinn and Super 8 in Webster City for $69.29 plus tax per night. Super 8 will hold these rooms until March 22 and AmericInn until April 2 so get your room reservations in soon. 

The show season will be here before you know it.
