You've seen the ads from Pacific Crest..."For lasting fineness...breed to the Accoyo America's Nautilus line." We couldn't agree more! And now is your chance to own one of the line! Diomedes has that perfect combination of fineness and density with an indescribable brightness, and he is passing it lights and in color! First histograms on his offspring are fabulous! Of the 11 that we tested in 2010, all but three fell under 17 microns (with those 3 at 17.2, 19.1, 19.2,) and the SD's rang ...

We are EXTREMELY happy to have acquired BRADFORD from Grazing Hills Alpacas!

Bradford is the half brother of our dearly departed Dirk. Both are sons of Accoyo-America DIOMEDES who is now deceased. Diomedes imprinted his handsome head and his amazing fleece characteristics to these sons of his and for that reason we jumped at the chance to have another Diomedes boy on the farm!

Bradford x Vanora = Kaeleigh: our first Bradford baby born on the farm June 2020. She's a beaut!
Kaeleigh is so pretty we rebred Vanora to Bradford . . . and Kenzie . . . and Muireall . . . and Khloë!
Three of those four have had their cria and they have GORGEOUS fleece! Many of our breedings will be to Bradford again. That's just how nice we think he is!

Bradford has a beautiful head, nice bite, boxy conformation, wonderfully straight topline, super fleece characteristics. Handsome on all counts!

He is an eager breeder, ready for action, and we are offering his drive-by breedings at $600.

2023 Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) results were ranked out of 30,965 males:
TOP 5% for AFD, —1.947: likely to decrease fiber diameter in offspring
TOP 17% SDAFD, —0.367: likely to decrease standard deviation in offspring
TOP 5.4% SF, —1.92 likely to decrease spin fineness in offspring
TOP 7.6% %F>30, —6.271: likely to decrease fibers over 30 micron in offspring
TOP 17% MC, 2.974: likely to increase mean curvature in offspring
Ranked 66% for %M, -0.049, likely to decrease medullation in offspring
Ranked 49% for MSL, -.276, likely to decrease staple length in offspring
Ranked 75% for FW, 0.02, likely to increase fleece weight slightly in offspring

With results like this at 13 years old—that's what we call LINGERING FINENESS! You will see that we have used him with our girls A LOT: he has much to offer and he passes it down to the next generation!

Is it fineness you need? Then bring your girls over, especially your coarser girls with longer staple. With this guy, it's hard to imagine you won't get a better-fleeced cria from a breeding to Bradford! Discounts for multiple breedings.
