Stargazer's Curley Sue

Improving or maintaining fiber fineness in our herds is always a factor in our decision process of making breeding and purchasing selections. The down side to that is without equal attention being paid to fleece weight production, you are handicapping your future fiber production. Just a 2 micron improvement of fiber diameter will affect fleece weight production without a compensating increase in density and/or staple length.

Curley Sue, an offspring of a couple of our best producers, she has been ranked among the top females for the combined index value of improving both AFD and Fleece Weight. That puts her close to the top 10% of the top 1% of 50,000 alpacas used in the EPD program. Also, the relationship of her curvature to staple length identifies her as an outlier in those trait developments as well. Curley Sue is a super fine, dense and show winning female that will continue to outperform most alpacas.

Everybody’s bottom line is affected by the value of the males produced. Curley Sue is a female that will produce useful herdsires and be a valued member to your breeding program. A show quality female with superb genetics … true seedstock.

Her full brother Callisto is on our herdsire row and is one of the top males in the EPD program to improve fineness with the greatest increase in fleece weight as well.
