Sara Jane Maclennan has been an AOBA Certified Judge since 2005, and is a Judge Trainer for the Judge Apprenticeship Program.

Further, Sara Jane has taught many seminars at alpaca venues and is keenly interested in getting information out to the breeders with the goal of improving the American herd.
Sara Jane first encountered alpacas while living in South America. She and her husband Hugh began Dundee Farm in 1997. On their farm at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Sedalia Colorado, they raise huacaya alpacas, standing several studs.
