Our Goals and Philosophy
Our focus from the beginning has been to produce the highest quality white and light alpacas in North America. Our mantra of “Building Better Babies’ has been the focus of our breeding program and is based upon documented pedigrees of lineages obtained from the Accoyo Estancia and other top Peruvian genetics. We have made our breeding and purchase decisions based upon objectively measured fiber qualities, pleasing phenotype and utilization of the top performing bloodlines.
We have always maintained detailed fiber and health records since 1998 and has been a great help in utilizing the most advanced evaluation systems available today. Currently, the most accurate genetic evaluation systems is the AOA EPD program (Expected Progeny Difference program). It is used to identify the performance potential of individual animals. The accumulation of the historical data has been a great help in establishing our herd trait data among the most accurate in the EPD program.
Our breeding program has proven itself over and over again. We’ve been awarded over three dozen Championships, 250 Ribbons and a dozen special recognition awards for superior trait production. While our need to participate in the show ring has diminished over the past few years, our passion to improve each generation has not. We are very focused on scientific data and measurable fleece characteristic in our breeding selection evaluation and continue to produce among the best in the US.
