Valedar's Armando may be purchased for $15,000 (40% off listed price) during our Retirement Sale!

Armando, a Victor grandson,full Peruvian and 5/8/Accoyo, was one of the lowest micron studs in the Ideal Alpaca Program and Ranked #3 in 2014 for fineness and #2 for spin fineness in the AOA EPD program and also extremely dense . In 2014 he was in the top 1% in six of the nine EPDs and top 2% in one other. This is quite an accomplishment for a nine year old breeding stud. In 2013 he was ranked #2 in both micron and spin fineness! He is built very sturdy on a compact frame and possesses good conformation.

His genetics run deep with Victor's Valedar as his sire, Pperuvian Victor as grandsire and Peruvian Hemingway his great-grandsire on the top side. On the bottom side he has Pperuvian Hemingway as his great-grandsire.

A recent fiber sort showed 8 out of 10 for brightness, 9 out of 10 for density and 8 out of 10 for uniformity of crimp with moderate amplitude and moderate frequency of 6-7 per inch. He had 45.5 oz of WL 2 & 3 in his blanket and 36.0 of the same in his neck. Staple length is 2 1/2 - 3 inches. Sorter said "nice density and volume, nice loft and lovely handle."

He has not only maintained incredible lingering fineness, but also uniformity of fiber,curvature, % under 30 microns and lack of medullation through his ninth shearing! Mike Safley evaluated Armando and commented that he was very nice for his age and would make a great stud for a colored breeding program after noticing his small brown spot on his topknot on an otherwise all white fiber coverage. Our experience in breeding him is that he throws white or light fawn cria even when bred to dark browns.

Armando's EPD 2015 Results: As of his 10th shearing, Armando is in the top 1% and off the charts on fineness, spin fineness, %>30M and Curvature, SD on Curvature and on lack of medulation; top 3% in uniformity of fiber (SD), and despite a shorter staple length still is in the top 29% in fleece weight. If you want to make large genetic gains with either white or colored females who need improvement in these characteristics, then consider a breeding to Armando! 

Armando's EPD 2016 Results: As of his 11th shearing, Armando is in the top 1% and off the charts on fineness, spin fineness, %>30M and Curvature and on lack of medulation; top 2% in uniformity of fiber (SD), and despite a shorter staple length still is in the top 32% in fleece weight. If you want to make large genetic gains with either white or colored females who need improvement in these characteristics, then consider purchasing Armando! 

Whether you are interested in purchasing high quality alpacas for breeding, show, fiber or selecting a herd sire to breed to, you should use Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) as your most important selection tool in addition to evaluating phenotype. You can also increase the probability of creating ideal offspring with up to 95% accuracy. Contact us to learn more about using EPDs. We have been using them to improve our herd since 2008.
