Dear Sir,
We have a small alpaca farm located in Wilbraham. We've been paying boarding fees in Canada waiting for the border to reopen. We have been unable to convince the officials that a beef animal and a fiber animal shouldn't be grouped together in this issue. We were excited when we read that the border was going to be reopened on March 7, 2005.
What can I do, R-Calf does not care about alpacas and we are lumped together. How can I get Alpacas taken off list? It is not common practice to Alpacas! How can I convince USDA to change this and at least save our farm?

Who do we contact to lift the band on alpacas crossing the border? I am going to loose my farm. Alpacas do not even belong on the ruminant list.
They are not eaten.
Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
Marcie K. Sanders
