Offering the Power of Pedigree and the Proof of Progeny

We breed for alpacas with a fine dense fleece, low guard hair  and extreme uniformity. Our heritage of top class genetics  is outstanding sourced from New Zealand, USA and Europe.

Our studs include imported studs as well as NZ born boys, who join the stud stable on their own merit. 


Developing the NZ alpaca industry since 1989 with top genetics, for studs & sales.

We have imported studs from the well-known Australian Purrumbete Peruvian and USA accoyo bloodlines.

Their genetic improvement is proven they endow their progeny with denser fleece, greater shear weight, and finer fibre.

Stud Booklet 0809

In our stud stables we offer a great choice of top quality, show winning, studs from the top genetic lines of Australia and USA.

They include many top accoyo Peruvian lines proven through pedigree lines with generations of offspring and years of Show performance.

Our Stud Stables
Our white stable is led by Brutus, our USA import with the fineness factor.  We now have championship sons from Brutus in our stud stable too. Look for Lennon (North Island), and Titus and Black Adder in Europe.

Our fawn stable is led by a Brutus son in fawn, multi-champion winning Titus (Europe).

Our darker colour stable boasts a Brutus son in black, Black Adder, in Europe. We also have from USA champion black Maipo, Trevo II who is also in Europe.

Studs for Sale

We have a selection of young males available from these top lines for sale as studs.  Some are already proven, with cria on the ground.

Live Birth Guarantee and Re-mate Policy   

For most full-fee matings in the Canterbury area we offer a live birth guarantee. We may be able to extend this to other geographic areas, depending upon the availability and location of the stud.

Our live birth guarantee is the offering of a free stud service with the same stud if the dam does not have a viable cria.

Southern Alpacas Stud will offer a free return service if:
- a cria is not born (absorbed, retained CL etc) or
- cria is born dead (premature, still born, dystocia etc) or
- cria is born with congenital issues (very rare, vet evidence required)

Conditions apply. Every care has to be taken of the dam, and the cria, before and during birthing. It will be at our discretion whether we extend a free return service if a full-term, healthy, cria is born alive and dies in the next few days. We do expect due care to be taken of cria and dams.

The live cria guarantee will be honoured after a post mortem certificate signed by a vet confirms that the loss was not due to avoidable circumstances.

Free return stud services are to be taken as soon as possible after the female is ready for
re-mating, and should not be deferred to later seasons.

This return service is generally not transferable - it is for the same dam and the same sire.

In some instances, due to the planned future location/s of the stud, a live birth guarantee may be offered with a different stud.

Should the female have a health problem which means she is unable to retain her pregnancy, then another female may be able to be substituted, subject to mutual agreement.

Free returns and live birth guarantees cannot be undertaken in the event of the death of the female.
