ILR Incentive Fund (ILR-IF)
What is it and How does it work?
We are happy to have finalized the ILR Incentive
Fund (ILR-IF) programming and postings.
What is the ILR-IF?
The Incentive Fund is basically a year long futurity
and advertising opportunity! You are already showing
your llamas and this is a chance to earn cash back
for shows you are going to anyway and get promotion
for your herd sire at the same time without any
What shows qualify for ILR-IF points?
ANY show – that’s the beauty of the Incentive Fund
concept – any ILR-SD show, Futurity show, open show,
ALSA show or club show you participate in can earn
you incentive fund points that are turned into cash
at year end. Points assigned are based on the number
of class entries – the ILR-IF points chart is on the
ILR website. Two bites out of the same apple –
ILR-IF points are given in addition to show
association points! Two chances for recognition with
one show entry fee, plus cash back at the end of the
Who benefits from the ILR-IF?
The ILR-IF points are paid back 70% to the show
animal owner, 10% to the person who enrolled the
show animal, and 20% to the herd sire owner. You can
earn money for animals you have sold and add value
to your herd sire.
How do I sign up for the ILR-IF?
There is a two step process to enter the ILR-IF
Enroll the offspring you plan to show – this
is a lifetime nomination! You can show this animal
for years and earn cash back over the entire show
career of the animal – even after you have sold it!
Nominate the herd sire. This needs to be done
annually if offspring are being shown.
How much does it cost to get started?
This is real bang for your buck promotion money
$100 for lifetime enrollment. The ILR-IF enrollment
is highlighted pedigree page of the ILR website for
the animal and will be on the ILR papers for the
animal. Remember, as the person enrolling the llama,
you will earn 10% of the lifetime earnings of the
animal whether you still own it or not!
Herd sire nomination
$100 per year for each offspring enrolled that year
(maximum of $500). The herd sires are featured on
the Herd Sire Row feature on the ILR website and a
designation is made on his pedigree page as well.
Also, the owner of every one of his eligible
offspring is sent a notification that they are
eligible to enroll in the program and an ILR-IF
eligible designation is made on their pedigree page
on the website.
How much are points worth?
The total moneys paid into the program less a 10%
administration fee for the ILR office are divided by
the total points achieved for the enrolled offspring
based on age. Basically, the more animals enrolled
and the more herd sires nominated, the larger the IF
becomes. The more you show your llamas, the more
points you earn. Win, Win, Win!!
