Dear Alpaca Friends,

Here we are at the 26th Futurity Show, and 33rd consecutive annual Celebrity Spring Alpaca Auction. It has been awe inspiring to watch this industry grow from importing its first seed stock animals in the 1990’s to becoming producers of some of the world’s finest alpaca breeding stock, and high end fiber producers. Thanks to so many of you over the year’s, the Futurity has grown to be one of the livestock industry’s premier events, and arguably the toughest competition alpaca show in the world. We feel a great deal of pride and gratitude to have been on the journey the entire way!

We are very excited to be back at The American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri! It is a truly fantastic facility in a wonderful and entertaining city.

As always, the consignors have stepped up with the best they have to offer! The alpacas consigned to this year’s auction are truly fantastic, and a few of them are downright legendary! There is truly something in this auction for everyone . . . Suri or Huacaya, seasoned breeders and brand new farms. We thank the consignors for bringing such a great group of alpacas!

To all of you past and present exhibitors, herdsire owners, and especially our show sponsors – thank you! You make this all possible!

  • The world’s longest running and most successful consignment alpaca sale!
