Glenhope is situated on 60 hectares of land, 4 kms from Armidale in Northern NSW, Australia. With a combination of native and improved pastures, mild summers and cool winters the conditions are perfect for breeding alpacas.  On our property we use sustainable farming practices and each year we  fatten about 40 angus weaners for market.

Over the years we have travelled extensively looking at animals and keeping up to date with cutting edge breeding technologies. The relationships we have developed with like minded breeders in Australia and overseas are invaluable and we hope to continue developing this network of people.

David together with Dr Jim Watts is committed to teaching and assisting breeders in Australia and other countries become involved in using the SRS® breeding system. Workshops were held in Germany in 2009 and again in Northern and Southern Germany and Italy in 2010.

Bron and David welcome enquiries from new and established breeders  wanting to explore the possibility of breeding alpaca or becoming involved in the SRS® breeding programme.
