Colusa Riverside Alpaca Ranch is proud to offer alpaca sales and breeding with some of the most exemplary alpaca Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) fiber trait values in the nation. Our herdsires are all ranked in the top 1% and 2% of EPDs tracked by the Alpaca Owner's Association. Our herdsires ability to improve fiber traits in their offspring is better than 99% of all alpacas tested by AOA. We have been working hard over the past years to selectively breed and purchase alpacas to achieve notable EPDs we can now offer to our customers. With a gifted EPD foundation herd, we have also been integrating world class density into these foundation alpacas.
Our renowned MSA HEMINGWAY’S BOGART and our other outstanding studs are now, and will in future years, be the genetic basis for our breeding program. Bogart, one of the last living sons of MSA Hemingway, is as potent as ever and is available for stud at Colusa Riverside Alpacas. Bogart has it all: nationally ranked EPDs and a follicle density of 60.4 mm at age 13.
Expected Progeny Differences (EPD's)
EPDs will predict fiber trait outcomes in your offspring. EPDs are the gold standard of all livestock industries, EPD use in the alpaca industry will soon become the same gold standard. If you buy a herdsire from us, he will be in the top ranking in AOA’s EPD program. We hope you will consider EPDs and Colusa Riverside Alpacas in your breeding and purchase decisions.
