EP Cambridge Alpaca Stud


“When your clients win – You win”

“When your clients win – You win” – A timeless business adage, is there really one more True???
Even more satisfying when your new clients, have also been such long time friends!
It was very satisfying too sell our 2017 national Junior Champ male EP Cambridge Connoisseur to Janie from Coolawarra Alpaca Stud.
IT was even more satisfying (given we had taken him back to HQ too run out for the year) to return 12 months later to claim the Ultimate Alpaca Prize for Janie and Ian.
We are thrilled this magnificent young male will be going as the flag bearer into the amalgamation of two such long standing herds as Coolaroo and Illawarra.

When we purchased our first 5 females we never in all our wildest dreams imagined twenty years later we would own and control over 4000 alpacas worldwide subsequently making us the largest ‘alpaca stud’ in the world.

It has been a wonderful journey that has taken us both to the high Altiplano of Peru assessing many thousands of alpacas to speaking on alpaca nutrition in places like Norway, Switzerland, France, United Kingdom etc.

We have co judged – which is an absolute pleasure not only professionally but also on a social level as well. The shows we have co judged include The Royal Melbourne – Australia 2018,  The Heart of England 2018 and together in Europe at many shows over the last 10 + years.   We have both been honored to have  independently judged prestigious European shows such as the The British Futurity, ‘Royal Bath and West’, British Alpaca Nationals, The SWAG  and many prestigious European shows.

We have both been invited and undertaken screenings for various European Alpaca associations and registries over the past decade. Having been entrusted with these duties are perhaps the highest personal accolades we have received to date in this amazing industry.

We have sold and then co-ordinated large scale exports to China and made new alpaca friends and clients throughout most European countries including Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France, Ireland, Norway and Spain and more recently the Middle East.

Our bloodlines dominate most shows throughout Europe and Australasia.

Our fabulous team of staff are committed to breeding the holy grail of alpacas, while the business end of this industry has been very kind to us the pure love for these animals is our biggest win of all.

We hope you enjoy browsing through our site and look forward to hearing from you.
