About our Stud services

Do you want to grow your herd? Do you need some top genetics to mix with your existing animals?

Favourite Alice 2, Pembrokeshire Alpacas, Sweet Home Alpaca cropped

We brought home a fine-looking stud, who had the grandest of blood, oh what a cracker! from Sweet Home Alpaca now my breed is just gooder than good!

…Okay… So, poetry isn’t our strong point, but alpaca breeding is.

 

Do you want to grow your herd? Do you need some top genetics to mix with your existing animals?

 

Studs should be bred to give your crias the best temperament and conformation, along with a fine and dense fibre.

 

At Sweet Home Alpaca, we believe in only the best for the animals and our customers.

 

This is why we have carefully selected the finest quality black huacaya stud males with outstanding genetics and temperaments. We have the largest herd of black huayaca alpacas in Wales. Our breeding alpacas are considered to be the leaders of the alpaca industry.

 

Our careful selective breeding programme means that our offspring continue to improve in quality, year on year.

 

We can advise you on how to optimise your own breeding programme, using our exceptional stud males, to help to achieve the best results and improve your own herd. We received such fantastic support when we started out that we want to provide the same level of care and support to other alpaca breeders.

Onsite mating

All female alpacas will stay in a disinfected neutral area in a separate area of the farm, away from other animals and paddocks. This is to ensure that our stringent biosecurity measures are adhered to. Our studs are always kept in designated areas away from the females.

Drive-by or mobile mating

As well as our onsite service, we also offer drive-by or mobile mating.

For mobile mating, we will ask you to nominate a neutral area where we can set up our own pens and disinfecting mats.

Prices

£600 Plus VAT

We charge 50p per mile for mobile mating.

Inca Majestic 717 (stud)

Our main stud is Inca Majestic (717): he has excellent bones and balance, and has been selected for his aversion to worms, coccidia and mites as well as his early weaning and maturation, and fast growth.

Inca Majestic’s fleece is very advanced and highly productive. His fleece is dense and uniform, is brilliantly bright, and has a hefty cutting weight. He is easy to handle, as are his existing progeny, and he has a great temperament; he is very easy to handle.

At Sweet Home Alpaca, we have a wide selection of high-quality stud males available, and we can help you choose the right one for your breeding program. We also have a number of young stud males starting work every year, so you can find the right stud at a competitive price. Our farm has the highest possible biosecurity standards, so you can be confident that your animals will be safe and healthy.

Terms and conditions

If your cria dies within three days of birth, Sweet Home Alpaca will provide a free return service (mileage not included). If the death occurs after three days, special circumstances will be considered.

Transport of the sire for mobile services will be charged according to mileage. Sweet Home Alpaca cannot guarantee dates for mobile stud service visits but will work with customers to book mutually agreeable and convenient dates. A maximum of three visits are included in the price for mobile services (mileage not included). If the female is not pregnant after the third successful mating, an additional charge may be added for subsequent visits; however, the owner may wish to substitute the female or have the female checked by a vet this may incur additional charges.

When a client books a stud service, they are committing to the service and the service fee is payable no matter what the pregnancy outcome. If, after the services have been carried out, the female does not fall pregnant or loses the pregnancy, the stud service will be valid for the following season.

Sweet Home Alpaca guarantees a live cria on the ground (48 hours) or a free return to service for UK mainland clients (this applies to the original female; it is not transferable).

A live cria guarantee will be honoured after a post-mortem certificate signed by a veterinarian proves that the death was not due to negligence. Stud fee and live cria cannot be honoured in the event of the death of the female. Females should have no more than 12 months fibre growth.

Invoices for stud services will be raised after the first service has been carried out and are due on receipt. Late payment may result in all remaining services being refused.
