Alpaka Kauf


As a result of recent devel­op­ments, alpacas are very much in demand. The price is deter­mined by breed­ing sta­tus, fibre prop­er­ties, age, sex, and suc­cess in shows.

Before buy­ing alpacas, it is impor­tant to decide for cer­tain whether you intend to keep the ani­mals as a hob­by or to start a breed­ing pro­gramme. The selec­tion of ani­mals for sale and the con­stel­la­tion of a group will vary depend­ing on either of these require­ments. Our hua­cayas are always an asset, no mat­ter whether they are kept to pro­vide wool, to help main­tain the coun­try­side, or to serve as faith­ful com­pan­ions. How­ev­er, cer­tain rules must be observed when it comes to the humane hus­bandry of these herd ani­mals. We would be pleased to offer advice and to share our expe­ri­ence in order to help you to estab­lish your herd.

Alpacas are usu­al­ly kept for their soft, lux­u­ri­ous fleece, which stands out for its finesse, light­ness and dura­bil­i­ty, as well as its excel­lent ther­moreg­u­lat­ing prop­er­ties and silky shine. Each ani­mal pro­duces between 3 and 6 kg of fibre every year. This mate­r­i­al can be used to cre­ate a vari­ety of prod­ucts, from yarn and cloth­ing to blan­kets and tapestries.

Alpacas are extreme­ly eco­log­i­cal and adapt well to the envi­ron­ment. They are com­pact, intel­li­gent and friend­ly. Fur­ther­more, they require only small amounts of water and food: their dai­ly con­sump­tion is only around 25% of that of cat­tle or hors­es. Alpacas are mem­bers of the order Artio­dacty­la (‘even-toed’) and the sub­or­der Tylopo­da (‘swollen foot’). The soft pads on their feet cause no dam­age as they walk, leav­ing the ground intact. They nib­ble the grass rather than tear­ing it from the ground, mean­ing that the turf is well maintained.

Alpa­Suri alpacas are of excep­tion­al qual­i­ty. We set the high­est stan­dards in our breed­ing pro­gramme, inte­grat­ing the find­ings of our inter­na­tion­al research and our many years of exper­tise in ani­mal hus­bandry. We also adhere to exact­ing stan­dards in the area of train­ing, attach­ing great impor­tance to a care­ful approach and suf­fi­cient time.
