Big Red Acres is a member of recognized industry associations such as Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOA)
and the New England Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (NEAOBA). These organizations are an essential lifeline
to all alpaca owners and breeders and provide access to a wealth of information, communication, and educational opportunities.
Links to these great sites and more are provided below.
Alpaca Owners Association: AOA is
a national association that was formed to promote public awareness and growth of the alpaca industry, provide a forum for
education, and to establish and maintain an alpaca registry. It gathers and maintains accurate genealogical records
focusing on the expansion and accuracy of those records. Up-to-date owner and member lists are maintained and new accounts
created for new owners and breeders. Visit the AOA website at http://www.alpacainfo.com.
New England Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association: NEAOBA
is made up of most of the alpaca owners of this region. Like AOA, NEAOBA promotes the "alpaca lifestyle",
communication, education through seminars and newsletters, and support of local marketing efforts. Click on the logo at
