The 2020 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular will include competition, education, vendors, silent and live auctions open to the public and more. Once again we will be in the Will Rogers Complex on Lancaster in Fort Worth, TX. Cattle Barns 2 and 3 with the adjoining arena affords us a large and extensive facility that provides a venue that compares with anything in the nation! This event has grown each of the past two years and in 2018 had 325 alpacas, multiple vendors and an extensive array of educational offerings. 2019 expanded on the success of 2018's Walking Fleece competition, grew the performance competition targeting younger competitors and added even more vendors. 2020 will be exploding this success with even more new offerings and opportunities!! We are getting the word out early so that everyone will block their calendars and be sure to tell all their contacts. Look forward to seeing you there!!

This hands on and interactive seminar will be led by AOA Senior Judge Amanda VandenBosch. The program will cover micron assessment and uniformity, identify fleece style, assess fiber development and the tools that can help us. We will brainstorm on improving yield, look at fiber grades, end use and product development to add value to your farm. Please bring one or two fleeces per farm for review during the seminar. We will put into practice what we learn. Don't miss this great opportunity to spend the day with Amanda talking fleece!
