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 traveled 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 designed by Jim following many years of research at the C.S.I.R.O. Workshops have been held in Germany, Northern and Southern Germany, Italy and the United kingdom.
Bron and David welcome inquiries from new and established breeders wanting to explore the possibility of breeding alpaca for the first time or for breeders wanting to gain an understanding of the advanced breeding techniques used at Glenhope using this proven scientific system.
