MAGAZINE - Alpacas Australia Summer Edition, Issue No: 59 only $11.00

Alpacas Australia is the industry magazine produced by the Australian Alpaca Association (AAA).

This is the VERY BEST magazine produced by the AAA to date - a true triumph in information. Invaluable to new comers to the industry - therefore our farm has obtained 10 copies for those interested in owning / breeding alpacas.

This magazine is so good - it is like reading a novel, you just can't put it down!
