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 has 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!
Kaeliegh turned out 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. 2021 Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) results (11 years):TOP 6% for AFD, —1.800:
likely to decrease fiber diameter in offspringTOP 11% SDAFD, —0.417:
likely to decrease standard deviation in offspringTOP 6.35% SF, —1.778
likely to decrease spin fineness in offspringTOP 10% %F>30, —5.752:
likely to decrease fibers over 30 micron in offspringTOP 17% MC, 2.882:
likely to increase mean curvature in offspring
Ranked 36% for %M, -1.349, likely to decrease medullation in offspring
Ranked 72% for MSL, -1.328, likely to decrease staple length in offspring
Ranked 77% for FW, 0.003, likely to increase fleece weight slightly in offspring
Now that's what we call LINGERING FINENESS!
Is it fineness you need? Then bring your girls over, especially your coarser girls with longer staple. We bet you will get a better-fleeced cria from a breeding to Bradford!
