About Birchleaf Alpacas

We have been noticing that many north American Show Judges are once again overlooking Conformational faults and awarding Champions on Short dense fleeces, and not checking into the extremities. Some of these alpacas by year 4 on only producing 2 to 3 inches of fleece??. while Australian Huacaya are achieving 4 to 6 inches into mid years and up to 15 lbs/ yr. "Check SRS" Also they looking at shearing twice a year. We have to advance alpacas to where the Merino Sheep are now!! Focusing on neck fibre and full body to match the blanket for the life of the animal.
We continually focus on breeding Macho's that possess the advanced qualities. All our alpacas are DUAL registered or eligible. Let our 20+ years of experience help you to produce a Future CHAMPION. We are proud to have won 18 Supreme Championships and over 85 Championships in halter and fleece, for both color and white, and our trilled to see breeders we have sold to bring home Championships.
Check out our new Co-0wned Herdsire with Caley Alpacas. MFI/TNT Peruvian Foundation. He's extraordinary, and producing Champions on both sides of the border. Foundation is a true impact sire, that stamps out the full package, buyers of his offspring are elated with their quality and results .
Our #1 focus is on conformationally correct animals, with the correct leg set and straight back line and correct balance.
Also we are very picky about the correct Jaw Set. We then focused on adding dense, consistent fibre with low SD's.
Our own experience shows that Conformation correctness takes a lot longer to achieve and if overlooked, takes at least 3 generations to knock out a fault. Know what to look for and be very critical on your selection :)
We have heavily culled on any animals that are poor milkers, reproductive flaws and crazy to work with.
