ASHTON—Terri (Lamfers) Meyer rolled the dice when she decided that she wanted to own and raise alpacas.

That is why the al­­paca farm the rural Sheldon woman and her husband, Gene, own about two miles south of Ashton is called Pair-A-Dice Ranch, which is located on the Lamfers family farm that is owned and operated by Meyer's father, John Lamfers.

The 54-year-old welcomed the public to the family farm of furry and friendly four-legged friends on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 29-30, as part of the 2018 National Alpaca Farm Days, which are put on by the Lincoln, NE-based Alpaca Owners Association Inc.

She explained why she has had her farm participate in the National Alpaca Farm Days for the past 12 years.

“It’s just to give people the opportunity to come out and not only see the animals, but be around them, experience them,” Meyer said.
