As this memorable year winds down we wanted to pause and take a look at 2020's llama auction results. Interest in llamas continues to be strong. Anecdotally, we hear from breeders all the time that they are sold out and continue to receive inquiries, our personal experience supports that as well. Demand continues to outpace supply. But did the up-and-down 2020 economy have an effect on auction prices? In this post we'll share some 2020 statistics and how they compared to results from 2019.
It's that time of the year! Holiday shopping for our friends, families, and ourselves (why not?). We've compiled a list for llama enthusiasts, things we'd be delighted to receive ourselves and are confident the llama lover in your family will enjoy as well.
