Pucara Puresuri Tikanui has proven himself to be a fabulous stud. His offspring have won over and over again in the show ring, and will be starting the next generation of offspring soon. Tikanui has consistently scored in the top 1% of EPDs in the United States. He has fabulous fleece, outstanding presence, and a calm, easy going personality that we see in most of his offspring.
Here are just a few of Tikanui's offspring. He was 5 times the first place winner in Get of Sire competitions in 2015 alone, demonstrating outstanding ability to stamp his excellence on his progeny.
Suri Herd Improvement Program Classification
In February 2014 our ranch participated in the Suri Network's Suri Herd Improvement Program.
Certified classifiers came to our farm and spent three days looking at every alpaca on our ranch and rating them on eight conformational characteristics and eight fleece characteristics. The results? We obtained expert input - unique to each animal - that will help us as we make breeding decisions. Our herd information will also help build a data base of all Suris in the country, so that EPDs can be calculated for Suri alpacas. Participating in the Suri Herd Improvement Program was, without a doubt, a wonderful investment for our farm, our alpacas and their future generations, and for the US Suri herd.
