Wisteria Suri Ranch, one of the newest members of the State of
Texas Alpaca Ranchers (STAR), welcomes Texas' first full Accoyo
Suri alpaca herdsire, Accoyo Dave's Othello.
According to AlpacaNation, the leading marketplace for alpaca
farms, Accoyo Dave's Othello will be the first full 100 percent
Accoyo Suri herdsire in Texas and the South Central region.
Accoyo genetics have been highly sought after by top breeders
nationwide for their slick, lustrous, and dense fleece.
Leanne Nakashima at Eldora Suri Alpacas who owns premier Accoyo
herdsires explains, "The Futurity Auction is considered the
pacesetter for the industry each year, featuring top Suri alpacas
selected from hundreds of candidates submitted from top breeders
all over the country. Ninety percent of the Suri alpacas selected
for the 2008 Futurity Auction have Accoyo lineage. What better
way to gauge the power of Accoyo genetics to improve and perfect
all types and colors of Suri Alpaca?"
Accoyo Dave's Othello was purchased from Daniel Adams at Adams
Suri Alpacas, one of three farms who make up the renowned Accoyo
A study by the Accoyo Partners Ltd. showed high correlation between
Accoyo genetics and show ring success. In 2007, 100 percent of
the color champions at the most competitive Futurity Show had Accoyo
genetics. In 2006 at the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association
(AOBA) National Show, similar results were seen in 86 percent of
Accoyo Dave's Othello will give Texans and other South Central
ranchers an opportunity to improve the genetics of their herd locally.
