Futurity Guidelines

1) All CLAA Registered Juvenile, Yearling and 2 Year Old offspring of the 2018 Subscribed Studs are eligible for the Futurity. This includes 0% Recorded Alpacas born in Canada. They must have a recorded number prior to the show in April

** Also, all cria resulting from breedings purchased in the November 2015 CNASF Stud Auction are eligible for the futurity as JUVENILES even if the studs are not subscribed for 2018. (This does not apply to stud owners who purchase their own herdsire's breeding in the auction.)

** For studs that were subscribed the previous year and are no longer able to breed in Canada (i.e. they have died, are unfertile or have been sold out of country), the owners may subscribe them to the futurity for one year only at the fee of $750.

Entries must be CLAA registered. Alpacas will be checked upon arrival for colour, sex, and microchip number. Minimum requirements to show are microchip and copy of the registration papers.

2) Where possible entries will be split into classes by colour, age, and sex. The colour splits will be:

  • White – only true whites
  • Light – includes beige and light fawns
  • Medium – includes medium & dark fawns
  • Dark – includes light, medium & dark browns
  • Black – includes bay black and black
  • Grey – includes rose and silver greys
