The 2011 ILR-SD International Finals

A Gathering of Friends and Champions


It is traditional in many livestock associations and national agriculture events to dedicate the national show to someone who has made a major impact on the industry. The ILR Board would like to adopt this tradition for our Show Division International Finals Event. The recipient of this dedication will be someone who has had an impact on the industry; someone who has helped promote llamas in a positive manner, someone who supports the industry as a whole, not just their area of interest, and someone who has committed themselves to improving the industry for llamas and for llama owners.


The dedication of The 2011 ILR-SD International Finals - A Gathering of Friends and Champions is well deserved and was an easy choice for the ILR Board. When this person ventured into llamas, there was no llama industry. This person has provided our industry with a strong foundation and they have kept what is best for the industry as their goal through out their career in llamas. Their passion for llamas is unquestioned and their support as the industry has grown and continues to grow is unmatched and without their commitment and promotion, it is unlikely that any of us here today would own and enjoy llamas. This person once ran an ad that said “Llamas Are Fun” and in that spirit, we dedicate the ILR Show Division 2011 International Finals Event to:


Kay Patterson of Hinterland Ranch
