The trademark of a successful breeding program is its` herdsires. Nothing imparts quality to a herd as quickly as a high quality, pre-potent herdsire. We use only herdsires with impeccable pedigrees, combined with champion show records, and superior fleece production records. We believe our herdsires have the highest degree of homozygous genes for those traits we are striving to develop, particularly large bone, legs with proper angulation, well balanced overall proportions, bodies with good spring of rib, a straight top line, heads with a short wedge shaped muzzle, large flaring nostrils with spear shaped ears covered with a well locked top knot. Our primary fleece goals are luster, lock, density, and fineness. As a result of being highly selective with our herdsires, we are consistently producing elite, world-class, suri alpacas.
With the integration of the Latah Creek herdsires, we have a remarkable group of elite herdsires from outstanding bloodlines.
You, too, can tap into this incredible collection of alpaca genetics when you breed your females to our outstanding, world-class herdsires.
