We are very pleased to get this girls EPDs. All EPDs will compliment our breeding program with staple length and fiber weight. We bought Catarina to 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 MSA Hemintway's Bogart. Cat's phenotype will be greatly accented with Bogart's genetic contribution of fineness, uniformity and longevity of fineness.
Catarina last cria was out of Snowmass RRoyal Stars. This pairing was done to improve the fiber density in our fiber foundation herd. Royal Stars has a skin biopsy of 78 which at present is considered to be the 4th best in the nation. Cat's histogram is certainly positive. Her sta
COLUSA RIVERSIDE ALPACAS IS SO PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE PURCHASE OF 2/3rd INTEREST IN THIS AMAZING HERDSIRE. What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned and a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogies EPDs rival the best in the world in nearly every fiber trait. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 13 years, his longevity is exemplary at 22 microns after 13 years of service to the industry.
Bogart has 96 offspring, he is 13 years of age and as potent as ever. Bogart is the Son of Sire MSA Hemingway G171 and the Accoyo Dam Macara 4652. We will be offering an opportunity to integrate some of the best EPDs in world into your herd with the help of Open Herd Auction. This celebration breeding offer will last through June 31, 2015. Bring your best girl and create an offspring of exceptional quality. We are very proud to add this Hemingway son, to our growing list of outstanding string of white herdsires. Bogie is ren
This little female brings together Mom's lineage of Caliente and Dad's Lineage of Heminway. She will prove to be a promising foundation dam for us or for some other ranch who would need this kind of fine foundation dam for their startup herd or to improve their herd. Faith's dam Catarina has density and fineness and so does her sire. Mom Catarina has on of the most well rounded EPD pictures for trait improvement. Faith should prove to be both dense, fine and uniform, she will get longevity of fineness from both dam and sire. Her Dam's AFD at age 10 is 22 microns and CV is 20. This is longevity. Bogart's AFD at age 16 is 22, SD of 4 and the same CV.
Faiths fiber is extremely fine, she has good staple length, her luster and handle are also nice. She is quite dense with few guard hairs in her cria fleece. You can see from her fleece pictures on this page she has luster, broad crimp, staples, and good density. If you would like to know what kind of Epd she might have given her dam and sire I have included under the fiber tab AOA E.P.D. prediction of what her trait values will be. But here are her 2016 EPds, Take a look! It doesn't get much better than this, mostly 1-5%!
Faith's first histogram is wonderful with an AFD of 16, SD under 4 and the rest of the values are excellent. Faith is the whole package from both actual fiber trait quality and the genetic predictability to pass those favorable traits to her offspring.
She is nearing 100 lbs and is just over a year of age, so breeding should be a go with Majestic's A Man Among Men in the next few months.
