Stud  Services

Biosecurity Protocols -

 

We maintain strict biosecurity protocols to protect both our herd and our clients' alpacas. Our farm is equipped with badger proof fencing around the entire perimeter of the property. Visitors are kindly asked to clean and disinfect their footwear at our disinfection station. Visiting alpacas are walked across a disinfection matt upon entry to the breeding barn. Matings will be conducted with both male and female wearing a spit mask for added protection.

For those bringing their animals to our farm, we expect total transparency regarding movement, contact, and health information from all herds applying for mating services from our males. We would prefer the client to use their own male for spit-off purposes if possible.

 

Stud Services Offered -

 

Drive By Mating –

Clients wishing to bring their females to our farm are welcome to do so. However, we request that the client respects our biosecurity protocols. All visitors will need to clean and disinfect their footwear. When the female arrives she will wall across a disinfected matt and will be penned and mated within our breeding barn and leave immediately after. Spit masks will be worn during mating.

 

Mobile Mating –

We offer a mobile mating service to clients within a 100 mile radius of the farm who practice strong biosecurity measures. Females must be penned and ready prior to our arrival. A clean and disinfected concrete area must be available to use for mating. Spit masks will be worn during mating. Mileage is charged for mobile servicing. We do not combine multiple farm visits for our studs in one day, so we do not combine mileage. We reserve the right to turn down the mating if we do not feel that the client has provided adequate biosecurity. Not all stud males are available for Mobile Mating.

 

On Farm Mating –

We are not currently offering On Farm Mating.

 

 

Stud Service Policies - 

 

We work closely with clients to achieve a smooth pregnancy. This means we set the visiting schedules around the needs of the female. If pregnancy should prove elusive, we reserve the right to recommend other options to progress the process.

We offer a live birth guarantee with every mating up to a limit of three months of age. If the female should lose the pregnancy or the cria perish due to natural cause before that time, we will re-mate as soon as is mutually convenient at no cost. 

We do not currently lease our stud males.
