EVER WANTED TO ASK QUESTION ABOUT THE ALPACA BUSINESS AND NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO ASK?

  • WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME TO BECOME A BREEDER?

  • HOW MANY ACRES OF LAND DO I NEED?

  • WHAT TYPE OF SHELTER AND FENCING SHOULD I HAVE?

  • MOST OF ALL HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I NEED TO GET STARTED?

These question and more will be answered on a visit to our Alpaca Rose Farm. New babies on the ground. Take a look at our award winning females and males, ask questions about the fast growing part of our business - the fiber market.

 

FOX Business Network did a wonderful story about alpacas on yesterday's 3 p.m. EST show, Countdown to the Closing Bell with Liz Claman. AOBA members, Barbara and Joe Crocco of Copper Star Alpaca Farm in Millerton, NY appeared live in the studio with a variety of items made from alpaca fiber and raw fleece. Video filmed at their farm yesterday accompanied the interview. 

The segment is now available online. Click HERE to watch Liz Claman point out that the fiber was "...like the softest angora (she) ever felt!" 

Also, as previously announced, AOBA member, alpaca enthusiast, entrepreneur, actress and TV host Erin Murphy will be featured on the Marie Osmond Show on the Hallmark Channel. This was originally set to air June 6 but due to a schedule mix-up, it is now scheduled to air next Tuesday, June 11. Set those DVRs!

Now, is Pucara Kahuna the best white suri male in US history? Well it does not matter, all that matters is what he has achieved. We here at Alpaca Rose Ranch have to say yes. It is hard to beat him so that is why we have chosen Pucara YADIIN to take us to the next level in our breeding program and hope you will take a look at him for future breedings. Kahuna's record below is hard to go against. Alan and Jude have a great breeding program and we want to thank them for sell Yadin.

The Futurity Light Herdsire of the Year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012
The Futurity Light Reserve Herdsire of the Year 2008.
AOBA Nationals Get team winner 2008, 2009 , 2010. Beaten by his grandson 2011.
Nationals 2008 Kahuna kids win every progeny class.
Since 2008 I have we have lost count of his Get Team wins including the Futurity 2009 and 2010, 2012. Second 2011
Pucara Kahuna has had more direct descendants win white/light championships than any other male!

Now add Peruvian Accoyo Jackpot, Pperuvian Bruxo, Pperuvian Torbio via Yadin's dam Belmonte's Belle WGAF and you have the ingredients for one of the most diverse but influential suri male cocktails ever concocted.

This boy reeks of luster and greasy thick locking. He has matured into a sterling stud quality male with girth, good bone and coverage to the ground. He is a ribbon winner and has the genetics for herdsire material. As a yearling he is showing amazing fiber development that puts him easily at the top of our production.
Yadin is now 2013 Futurity Light Male Champion and a member of the Pucara get of sire team.

After a great 2012 Show Season and Winning the Light Male Champion at the 2013 Futurity he has finish up with winning the Color Championship at CABA for 2013.

We believe this male will give us density that we need to give his Sire a run for his money.
