Farmers extol virtues of alpacas
PETERSBURG (AP) — Bart and Rhonda Leinberger had an unexpected but welcome visitor at Alpaca Days, held over a late-September weekend at their farm near Petersburg.

The Leinbergers knew one of their alpacas, Heidi, was within days of giving birth. They didn't know she would use the occasion of Alpaca Days — a chance for hundreds of visitors to get up close with the quirky but congenial cousins of llamas and for the Leinbergers to highlight products made from alpacas' luxurious fiber — to birth her first cria.
