Use Science to Choose Your Next Herdsire

Our Herdsires reduce AFD greater than 99.9% of all ARI tested Alpacas

Start developing your foundation herd, or improve your foundation herd based upon science, genetics and EPDs. The future of the alpaca industry is livestock with elite white fleece.  Like all other livestock industries EPDs are the gold standard for the value of the breeding livestock.  We offer you both in our herdsires. 

Colusa Riverside Alpaca's
mission is to breed for industry excellence. We use genetics and EPDs to guide our breeding practices. If you breed to Machu Picchu you know you are getting quality genetics and EPDs. Have your dam bred by Hemingway's Bogart and this is what he will do:

Trait Value Accuracy: Very few alpacas carry this kind of accuracy of EPDs

AFD -2.551 0.589 Bogie will produce 2.5 micron reduction in offspring.  Only 2 alpacas hold this level of EPD and accuracy for AFD reduction in their offspring.
SDAFD -0.397 0.6
SF -2.438 0.614

%F>30 -10.773 0.615 Another top ranking for fiber diameter uniformity.  Only 4 males carry this kind of uniformity in the ARI EPD database and Bogie is one.
MC 5.504 0.583 Incredible ability to produce crimp in offspring.  Bogie is in the top 1% of alpaca EPD for producing crimp. 

SDMC 2.193 0.485
%M -4.344 0.522
MSL -1.365 0.518

FW 0.329 0.474 Will increase overall fiber weight in offspring. Bogies is the top 15% of tested alpacas for increasing fiber weight

Bogie, Picchu or Propchecy can improve your fiber in every fiber character trait . Histogram MFD is 16.6. Visit Picchu and his excellent EPDs at his home at Colusa Riverside Alpacas.  Prophecy AFD is 19.8 at age 5 years old. Bogie's AFD at age 9 was 22 microns.  All three of these herdsires also offer longevity of fleece finess.
