Sadly the time has come for us to disperse our herd due to the severe drought and dwindling water supply we are experiencing in the New England area. Glenhope stud has used the SRS® breeding system for the past 15 years and have experienced huge progress with our herd in softness, micron, fleece length and fleece weight as well as a big reduction in primary fibres in our wool over this period. We were delighted to hear that a manufacturer of alpaca products thought our wool had been through a dehairer when he saw the quality of our knitted blanket range.
Shortly all our animals consisting of 120 females plus our stud males and potential stud males will be listed on our website with prices well below their value with prices commencing at $300. We would love our whole herd to go to breeders that would carry on with the breeding system we have followed but realize this may not be possible.
There will be a 10% reduction for the purchase of more than 5 females and a 20% reduction for 10 or more females. We would look at further reductions for a buyer wanting to purchase the whole herd.
Please call us for more information Bron 0422969310 or David 0434832001 and keep a watch for the sales list on our website.
