Club members are able to have a llama project even if they do not own a llama. Llamas are often leased by farms to 4-H’ers and boarded with the owner. In llama 4-H members learn to care for their animals by handling, training, grooming and showing.

 

Each year the Cowichan Valley Fibre Club attends llama shows, parades, nursing homes and other events. Members have an opportunity lo learn record keeping skills as well because of the record books that are kept through the year. 4-H is an excellent opportunity to expand ones knowledge and love of animals and the program is accepted in schools as a self directed course worth 8 high school credits.
