We Celebrate Together! #weareILR

Celebrate with us at the 13th Annual Gathering of Friends and Champions. This year’s event is one you don’t want to miss and will again feature the ILR-SD National Show, The Gathering Sale, the ILR-SD Futurity, Youth Activities including a pizza party/auction and much, much more.

RETURNING  THIS YEAR – We are excited to announce that Walton’s Webcasting will be live-streaming The Gathering, including the Sale and Futurity, throughout the weekend. This will provide an amazing opportunity for the lama community and your farm/business to be showcased nationally to all types of livestock enthusiasts. Walton’s Webcasting had 3.1 million views last year and will send an alert to all of their subscribers when the events begins. We can’t think of a better way to promote lamas and your farms to current and future owners than this. In addition to promotion from the show ring, farms/businesses that sponsor in the webcasting perk levels will also be featured on the webcast.

Added Bonus – Family and friends unable to attend can watch the live show for FREE. Join us for a lama style celebration! #weareILR.

The name “THE GATHERING” says it all! Let’s Gather together and make this year’s event the best yet. We can’t do it without YOU! You are the key to a successful show and the Gathering Committee Welcomes Your Help! Contact us today for a list of different volunteer opportunities. We have volunteer needs before, during or after the show. Your time commitment and role will be based on your needs/interests and typically require as little as 1 hour of your time. Please commit today to support this event and your industry as a volunteer. To thank you for your service, all volunteers that commit prior to May 27th will have their farm names listed in the 2023 Gathering Show Book!
