We fell in love with the living art that is the Suri alpaca a decade ago, and today we share a farm with around 180 Suris in Concordia, Missouri. We are surrounded by the grace and beauty of Suri alpacas.
We make breeding decisions carefully, using top stud males and females who have the characteristics to continue improvement of the Suri breed. We don’t want to just breed. We want to improve. Every year.
We gather data from a variety of sources to help us make breeding decisions. Annual histograms and EPDs, as well as information from the Suri Herd Improvement Program (SHIP) help identify strengths and weaknesses of each animal and are used in our breeding plans. We also show our animals at alpaca shows to see how they stack up to other high- quality alpacas and get feedback from alpaca judges.
We were honored that one of our herdsires, Pucara Puresuri Tikanui, was once again named light Suri Herdsire of the Year at the 2018 Futurity.
Our business model focuses on breeding and selling seed-stock and show quality alpacas, and creating small herds for new owners. We specialize is helping new farms start up. We help people who are interested in raising Suris define their goals, select alpacas to match their goals, and we provide ongoing mentoring.
