We are very pleased to get this girls EPDs. All EPDs will compliment our breeding program. We bought Catarina and integrate increased density into our foundation herd. Slow but steady progress is occurring here at Colusa Riverside in the goal to produce the best fiber & EPDs in the world of Alpacas. We strive to promote every animals potential to pass on positive fiber traits to each and every offspring. Visit us virtually or in person to buy, learn or see our alpacas and their EPDS. Catarina has been bred to Majestic's A Man Among Men, which should produce a magnificent offspring. Cat's phenotype ideal with good bone structure.
Cat's EPD picture is ideal. She has excellent values in all the right fiber traits for showing and breeding improvement in offspring. With nearly all traits in the 10% nationally or better. Cat's histogram for 2016 matches her EPD picture with consistency of fineness through her age of 10 years. She has an AFD of 21, SD of 4 and CV of 20 at that age is exceptional. Bred to A Man Among Men makes her a very desirable dam.
Catarina last cria "Keep the Faith" has one of the best fiber traits of any of our 2016 crop of cria, both in inspection and on her histogram. Cat's histogram is certainly positive. Her staple length is important to our breeding program.
Lots of lineage in this dam, such as Hemingway, El Nino, and Caliente who we are pleased to integrate into our foundation. Catarina definitely has size, conformation and good bone, an excellent phenotype structurally as a production dam. She has 2 offspring for us, and she is an effortless breeding, birther, and mother. We hope to have years of good production out of this wonderful dam.
