Would you like to purchase an organic herd of alpacas?
A commercially-sized herd of certified organic alpacas is set to go under the hammer in the UK.
The herd of white Huacaya alpacas is being sold by its owners Judith and Jonathan Russell, the Cumbria Crack website reports and the sale takes place on May 5 at Harrison and Hetherington’s Mart in Carlisle.
Established in 2007, the first foundation female alpacas were selected from the ‘Dream Selection’ imported by Bozedown Alpacas from Peru, it reports.
The Cumbria Crack says that since then, using UK stud services and a selective breeding process, the Northumbrian Alpaca herd has built a reputation for its outstanding and distinguished pedigree and top quality breeding stock.
Included in the sale are nine junior/open females, 21 pregnant females, 21 unproven entire males (including 10 young males) and five proven stud males.
The Cumbria Crack says that the Russells have succeeded in their aim of producing top-quality, healthy white huacayas with correct conformation and bred to have a very fine, dense, valuable fleece – which is organically certified.
Speaking about the upcoming sale Judith Russell was quoted in the Cumbria Crack saying that from junior boys through promising and pregnant females to top-quality, proven stud males with world-class fleece, we have something for everyone.
“Our animals will provide a great start for a new herd, add value to existing herds, or be great pets – and excellent for guarding lambs, chickens and the like from predators,” she said.
