Alpaca – Rarest of Breeds, Ultimate Natural Fiber by Dick Walker, President It is with great pleasure that I am once again serving you as president of the Suri Network. The challenges and opportunities faced by our industry are even greater now than when I last served in this position. It is clear that our industry, along with many others, is facing economic hardship and uncertainty. What is also important to understand is that much of the trouble stems from economic conditions beyond our control as breeders. As the overall economy continues to slowly, ever so slowly rebound, so will the Suri business. Waiting for this to happen is frustrating and has required all of us to tighten our belts, adjust, and develop more efficient ways to manage our herds. It has also caused many of us to look for income opportunities other than the sale barn such as end product sales and agri-tourism, to mention a few. For several years SN has been educating members on the need to transform the Suri business model into the Suri version of a ‘traditional livestock’ business. This model will be a combination of those things that have worked for our industry in the past with those that have worked for other livestock industries. The need to accelerate that conversion has never been so obvious. Bringing about that transition is both very challenging and in some cases uncomfortable for all of us, but the eventual reward for doing so is potentially, very great. From breeders who are ‘seed stock producers’ to those who want to raise a ‘fiber’ herd the rewards are there if we establish the appropriate model. Accomplishing this will require a combination of vision, entrepreneurship, cooperation, competition, and coordination. It will take a large dose of ‘good old Yankee ingenuity’ to make this happen. But happen it must, and the SN Board is committed to assisting you

From the President

Suri Network Board of Trustees from L to R: Jack Hanna, Kathleen Cullen, Mike Murphy, Linda Kondris, and Dick Walker. especially in the areas of vision, coordination, and cooperative efforts. The Suri Network Board will have a Strategic Planning secession in February. In preparation for that, you will be receiving a survey in order to get your input regarding industry priorities. The last SN Strategic Plan is more than five years old and challenging times certainly require timely strategic solutions. The Board will look forward to your input. I see a bright future for this industry; it is only the details that are a bit out of focus at this point. SN is committed to helping you sharpen those details and move forward.

SHOW AND MEMBERSHIP

Aoba show system

Just a reminder that I am on the AOBA Show Rules Committee (SRC), and Linda Kondris was recently appointed a member. If you have any concerns or ideas regarding shows, please let us know and we can bring it to the committee. At this time the committee has tried to not make any dramatic rules changes, just some minor changes to clarify or simplify certain areas.

SN Membership We believe the Suri Network gives you more for your dues than anyone in the industry! Jack will give you more info on our advertising campaign in his section, there are also continuing efforts in research, EPDs and more. (I will highlight the other efforts going on in your behalf.) We believe a rising tide floats all boats, so large or small, your success is our success. “Show and Membership” – Cont. on Page 4

EPDeasy

by Kathleen Cullen Most alpaca breeders have heard of EPD’s, but not all have had the time to read enough to really understand what they are and how they can help each and every alpaca breeder. Many articles about EPD’s are written in science language. Some alpaca breeders have not had that as their “foreign language.” This article will explain EPD’s in normal English language. EPD stands for Expected Progeny Differences. It would be easier if we called them Best Odds For a Better Cria. Basic laws of genetics explain that each parent passes a random one-half of its genes to its offspring. Because only one-half of the genes are passed on, only one-half of the breeding value is passed to the progeny. The term used for one-half of the average breeding value is EPD. EPDs can be used as a tool to guide selective breeding decisions in ways that increase, decrease or maintain any trait value measured in subsequent generations. An EPD database really consists of two databases. One database contains all the animal’s pedigrees. The pedigree database allows the animals in the database to be linked by genealogy (aunts, uncles, cousins, 10th cousins.) The 2nd database has the traits that were measured for each animal, (for example, average micron, CV, conformation, etc). The traits database can record numerous traits for each animal. Those databases grow each year as more animals and their traits are added. The more relationships present in the database for any given Suri, the more reliable are the EPDs that are generated. When an EPD is “run,” what happens is that those two databases are analyzed through a computer program that does complex calculations. This process results in a number for each trait that represents the expectation of that Suri’s ability to influence a measured trait in his offspring. These numbers are summarized and published as a “sire summary.” The published numbers can then be used to compare Suri herdsires directly on the basis of their EPD values. An EPD is a

measure of the degree of difference between the progeny of a particular Suri herdsire and the average of Suri herdsires in the database. The data from a sire summary can be used to select herdsires that are superior for traits that are desired and inferior for those traits that are undesirable. An EPD is usually given as a plus or minus value. Think of it like this: if the average man in the U.S. (the U.S. human herd) is 5'10" and there is a man who is 5'11" and this 5'11" man has 12 children that average 6'2", then this man’s EPD for height would be +3". This is a simplified example, the statistical calculations for a real EPD are much more complex. We would also know that this individual man is 1" taller than the average male human. So we need the height measurement of many, many men to tell us the average male human’s height in the U.S. before we could actually calculate this EPD. That is why the more men measured for height the more accurate that average number will be. So, for Suris, the more Suris included in the database, the more accurate our average numbers and EPD’s will be. As the database grows each year, and we see our averages change, we will also see that we are making progress overall in the Suris in the U.S. We can easily see some of the best examples of how much EPDs have helped improve certain traits by looking at other livestock industries. Using EPD’s, cattle breeders have been able to greatly improve certain desired traits, such a meat marbling. They chose to use sires whose offspring/ progeny have more marbling than the average animal in their database. If I have a female that is a great dam with lots of milk, her cria have great conformation, good locks, good luster, but are not real great on the micron, I probably want to breed her to a male that is more likely to improve (decrease) that average micron number. What is the best way to select that male? I can look around for a male with finer micron, and I can even look at some of his offspring; however, as we all know, some males have great micron

but they don’t pass that on to their cria. Is there a better way? What if I could look at a database of breeding males, and this database could tell me not just the male’s average micron, but tell me which males are more likely to produce a cria with lower micron? An EPD will tell me whether or not he typically passes that finer micron to his offspring. Next I can look for what other traits this male is strong or weak on to see if those make sense for this female as well. Who knows, Mr. Right may be in my own herd or right down the road at my neighbor’s farm, saving money on transportation. The numbers make this process of sire selection so much easier and objective. The chart below is an abbreviated example of what an EPD chart might look like. I can see that males 1, 2 and 4 tend to decrease the fiber diameter/micron in their offspring compared to the average population in the database. I can also tell that male #2 produces the biggest decrease in his offspring (progeny) with a -3.5. Male Fleece Fiber Fiber ID # Weight Diameter Length +.5 1 +2.11 -2.5 -.5 2 +2.7 -3.5 3

+3.5

+1.0

+1

4

+2.9

-1.8

+.8

Now, if I was looking for a male whose offspring produced more fiber length per year, then I would want to look for positive numbers, not negative. Thus some traits I want a positive number and some traits I want to see a negative number. EPDs cannot guarantee but they can predict outcomes. However, significant differences in management, will affect the expression of genetic traits to a variable degree. For example, alpacas sired by a male with a lower EPD for weaning weight could sire higher weaning weight crias than those sired by a male with a lower weaning weight EPD if they are exposed to a more favorable environment (fed 2nd cut hay vs. 1st cut, or more supplements in a creep feeder). The resulting “EPDEasy” – Cont. on Page 3

Suri Network News October/November, 2010 —Page 2


“EPDEasy” – Cont. from Page 2

weaning weights in this example are, to a large degree, determined by environment and not genetics. As more and more Suris enter the database from more and more farms, the effects of individual environments and management practices will level out. This is because EPD calculations adjust for different environments by a statistical process referred to in EPD calculations as ‘related groups’. These related groups take into account varying environments so that the predicted difference is valid under any environment. EPDs are not constant. As more information is obtained on an animal’s offspring, the EPD may change, particularly as more progeny information is recorded. This does not mean that the alpaca’s genetic make-up changes as he ages, but that the ability to predict the alpaca’s EPDs is improved as more information becomes available. Therefore, it is impossible to predict whether an animal’s EPDs will go up or down.

Yes! Expected Progeny Differences are a highly accurate means of predicting the transmitting ability of certain genetic traits of animals as parents. Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) allow the prediction of DIFFERENCES, not the trait measurement. Suri Network will continue to publish articles on how to understand the details of the values, numbers and heritability concepts of EPDs as the SN EPD program unfolds. It really is not difficult to understand the concepts and use them to our benefit. Geneticists speak “Geneticease,” but once translated into normal English, you can see how exciting this is as a tool to advance all of our Suris’ desired traits. The worldwide livestock organizations utilize EPD’s as standard practice, with proven results, so shall we! I would like to thank Dick Walker for his insightful comments and suggestions.

Affiliates, alpaca event coordinators and alpaca enthusiasts by Jack Hanna As a growth industry, it is important that we continue to promote the wonderful aspects of alpacas. Whether your niche is breeding colored animals, show ring success or alpaca fiber, the ongoing promotion of our industry is paramount to our success. In 2009, the Suri Network created the IPHAY program. IPHAY is the fund raising vehicle of the Suri Network which is solely dedicated to the promotion of Suri alpacas through advertising media. Our current partner is USA Today. Our first effort to raise money resulted in member contributions of $14,000. The Suri network more than matched this amount and 100% of this total was spent on an advertising campaign using USA Today, focused on building awareness of the Suri alpaca. In the spring of this year, we ran two ads covering the national circulation of more than 3 million readers. After the ads ran, hits on The Suri Network website increased substantially. As everyone knows advertising is a form of communication intended to persuade an individual or group to take some form of action. Results are not achieved over night and any

awareness campaign should be ongoing to achieve effective results. It is the opinion of the Suri Network that historically alpaca breeders have promoted alpacas to each other. We spend a lot of time, effort and money making other alpaca breeders aware of upcoming events. As a group we have not been very good at promoting alpaca events to the outside world. Intuitively we are all aware of the alluring characteristics of the alpaca. The reasons that attracted all of us to the alpaca industry are alive and well today. Thousands of individuals across the country would love to learn more about these magnificent animals if only made aware or given the opportunity. The Suri Network is committed to our advertising program and would like to expand our effort by offering insight, monetary support and our relationship with USA Today to AOBA affiliates, alpaca event coordinators and other alpaca enthusiasts. The concept is to co-op an advertising effort, using USA Today, with an AOBA affiliate in conjunction with an alpaca show

or other type of alpaca event. USA Today has 25 print markets and the newspaper can be very specific regarding geographical areas in an effort to target market. The Suri Network has developed standard ads. We will also work with the affiliate to modify text, photos, etc. if they would like to make edits. Ad costs are between $1,500 and $3,500 for each region. Prices are driven by circulation numbers. The Suri Network will split the costs with the affiliate. We will do all the design work, paper work and handle all details with USA Today including invoice payment. All the affiliate has to do is pay their share of the USA Today invoice to the Suri Network. If you or anyone you know is involved with the coordination of the many alpaca events held across the country please consider or pass along our offer. Just think, wouldn’t it be great to see twice as many people at your next Alpaca show…..and have the increase be new people who heard about the event from seeing it advertised in their local USA Today.

Progress Report ARF/SN Luster Study

The first 101 suri fiber samples were mostly white or light colored.  To complete the study, we needed dark colored suri fiber samples.  The Suri Network helped to provide us with the additional one hundred and five (105) samples, 102 colored suri fiber, from the summer 2009 collection thru January, 2010. SAMBA equipment was leased for a second month (January, 2010) to measure these colored samples. Sample selection (multiple samples selected for the following): 1.     Subjective assessment by judges 2.     Matching samples tested for luster and color 3.     Duplicate samples for testing on SAMBA (Bossa Nova Technologies) 4.     Samples for NIR (Infrared) Dry card samples to remove dirt and vegetable matter before straightening fibers in parallel configuration. Load samples on individual fiber holders to aqueous wash and rinse duplicate samples. Remove samples from individual fiber holders and hand rinse the clamped area of fiber sample. Place samples on covered drying tray to air dry. Condition for twenty four (24) hours at Standard Conditions (20ºC, 65% RH) on covered drying tray. (Conditioning takes longer from fiber samples that are not bone dry). Card the samples a second time to further straighten and place fibers in parallel configuration. “Show and Membership” – Cont. from Page 1

Banners: Ken and Marsha Hobert who run our business office in Estes Park, now have the equipment to make high quality pop-up and stall banners at a VERY reasonable price. These can be made to promote your farm/ranch, a herdsire or even another business you might have. As a bonus, the Hoberts will donate 10% of the cost back to SN! Contact the office and speak to Ken or Marsha. Mass emails: For a flat fee of $50, our office will send a mass email to the Suri Network membership your notice of a sale, farm day, herdsire, etc. For an additional fee the office will format and do all the work. Contact the office for more information. Get the Word Out: Call the office and give them the name and address of up to 10 businesses with waiting areas (doctor’s office, maintenance shop, etc.), and the Suri Network office will send a copy of Purely Suri with your farm info as a contact to them for FREE. (Good idea to contact them first to make sure they are

Stretch fiber samples and attach to two inch by eight inch black paper using staples and strapping tape. Attach samples to sample holder on the SAMBA Hair System for luster testing.  Send results to Nick Lechocinski of Bossa Nova Tech for his appraisal of the Suri luster data.  Additional tests have been run on these Suri alpaca samples:  Lab scoured yields calculated for each sample, clean conditioned samples were measured for fiber diameter (MFD, SD, CV), fiber curvature (AC, CSD), and staple length (MSL, SDL, CVL).  Dr. Christopher Lupton presented an update to the Suri Network Symposium in Estes Park, Colorado on August 20, 2010.  His presentation included subjective analysis by two certified AOBA fleece judges, Jude Anderson and Amanda VandenBosch.  The NIRS (Near Infrared System) analysis on the additional 105 samples tested in January, 2010, was not available at the meeting on August 20, 2010, but has since been completed.  Yet to be completed is preparation of final report and technical article, publication of refereed journal article to appear in the Small Ruminant Research Journal, and a “popular” version for suri alpaca industry magazine publication. Yocom-McColl and Dr. Lupton will design individual animal reports for distribution of Suri Luster Study results to project participants.  These individual reports will briefly explain luster and color (luminance) results.

okay with the idea.) Several farms have been doing this with great results, reaching contacts who would not be made in traditional ways. Public events: This past year a farm contacted us for some help with a public event. They had volunteered to help and put on something educational about alpacas. We sent them some fliers and magazines and the results were outstanding. If your area is putting on something in relation to ag-tourism, the livestock industry or something similar, contact the office and see what we can do to help. New member discount: Remember, if you give a gift membership to a new member you will receive a 10% discount on your membership renewal…no limit! Sign up 5 and get 50%! What many do is when you make a sale find out if the buyer is a member of SN. If not, buy their membership as a gift. This promotes good relations with your new customer and increases our membership, which in turn helps us all!


Special Thanks to Liz Vahlkamp for service extraordinaire

by Linda Kondris

It is with regret that we recently accepted Liz Vahlkamp’s resignation as Chairperson of the Suri Network Product Development Committee. Under Liz’s dynamic leadership, this key committee has accomplished many important initiatives that will benefit all Suri breeders for some time to come. Were you able to attend one of the many SN Fiber Seminars held across the country, have you used the SN patterns for Suri yarn, and will you use the Suri Fiber Harvesting Code of Practice to improve the consistency and value of your yearly clip? Liz also initiated the investigation of collection points and partnerships with processors of other fiber types to provide a platform for the eventual collection and processing of SN member’s Suri fiber. The collaborative efforts of the PDC is bringing Suri fiber to the attention of fiber enthusiasts across the country at large fiber festivals and Liz is foremost in representing Suri as a luxury fiber and supporting that our North American Suri fiber will be recognized as the supreme Suri fiber world wide. Liz has always exhibited an exceptional passion for the promotion and understanding of Suri and we appreciate her unending energy and commitment as we all work together to make Suri a sought after, highly valued fiber.

Suri Network Youth Program Update

The Suri Network Youth Program (SNYP) has been revived! The Youth Program had joined forces with the AOBA program. Since AOBA has decided not to pursue the youth program at this time, the Suri Network Board voted to renew the SNYP. A big thank-you to Joyce White of Tinkers Creek Alpacas for volunteering to take over the Committee Chair for the Youth Program. Thanks to Kelly Jarvis’ previous hard work, much of the groundwork has already been done. Kelly has agreed to consult with the Committee to get the Youth Program launched again!   The goal of the SNYP is to engage students (both 4-H and Future Farmers of America) from across the country by providing education on all aspects of the Suri alpaca industry. Both 4-H and FFA organizations have strong foundations with years and years of experience working with students in agricultural/livestock fields. FFA was founded in 1928 and currently has over 500,000 members, whereas 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization and seven million strong! Just think of the gains we could make by educating not only students involved in 4-H and FFA, but their parents, family, friends, etc! That’s a lot of new individuals exposed to the Suri alpaca industry.  Please think about volunteering either your farm as a host site, donating a gelding/fiber Suri alpaca or offering your time to participate in this incredible program. The youth are the future of today and our future Suri alpaca owners!  Anyone interested in joining this committee please contact Joyce White at Tinkersalpacas@aol.com.

Suri Network Symposium 2011

Mark your Calendar – August 4-6, 2011! Hello Chicago! In 2011 our annual summer event will be held in the great state of Illinois. Estes Park, Colorado has been a wonderful host location for 6 years, but we thought a change in venue might be appropriate. The Board of Trustees discussed multiple locations and after polling our membership (70% voted for the windy city) we decided Chicago would be an excellent fit. Our host will be the “Renaissance Chicago O’Hare Suites Hotel.” (www. renaissanceohare.com) This all-suite property offers excellent accommodations along with free pickup and return shuttle service from O’Hare (3 miles). The availability of terrific meeting facilities and a staff that is experienced in dealing with large meeting groups were important in our selection. Because of the ease of air travel in and out of O’Hare, plus the fact that a large percentage of U.S. Suri breeders are within driving distance, we feel that the Suri Symposium 2011 could be the largest ever. The agenda is still being put together but you can look forward to our ongoing commitment to education and a list of outstanding speakers. There will also be some new twists for 2011 so be on the lookout for more exciting information about next year’s Chicago event.

2010 SURI NETWORK SUMMER SYMPOSIUM WRAP-UP

Beautiful Estes Park, Colorado was once again the site of the annual Suri Network Summer Symposium where leading Suri breeders from across the country came together to learn and share. The Suri Network Symposium is the premier event each year for all Suri breeders and prospective breeders, who are interested in gaining the latest knowledge on a variety of important subjects from the world’s leading camelid practitioners.

There was a full schedule of presentations Friday and Saturday offering Suri breeders essential information for the improvement of their herds, increased fiber production and productive marketing. Alonso Burgos, CEO of Grupa Inca in Arequipa, Peru, spoke about Suri fleece processing and product development in Peru and shared an informative video showing their shearing process and the collection of Suri fleece. Dr. Chris Lupton, member

Two interactive panel discussions were offered. During the “Act Like a Breeder, Think Like a Marketer,” panel discussion moderated by Jack Hanna, Suri breeders, Cindy Harris, Alpacas at Windy Hills; Tim Sheets, Heritage Farm Suri Alpacas; Don Parks, Wind Walker Ranch and Jandy Sprouse, Great Lakes Ranch, shared their successful marketing strategies. The second panel, “Opening the Door to the Livestock Model,” moderated by Dr. Brett Kaysen, offered insight from successful livestock breeders; Kevin Miller of Croissant Red Angus, Travis Hoffman, who has a background in a diversified sheep, cattle and grain operation and Dr. Steve Levalley who is the Sheep and Wool Specialist at CSU.

Dr. David Pugh This year’s featured speaker was Dr. David Pugh, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACT & ACVN. Dr Pugh is the author of over 600 publications and over 80 book chapters and he has received numerous university and national awards for his contributions to veterinary medicine. Dr. Pugh spoke on a variety of subjects including parasite treatment and camelid nutrition. While noted for his academic contributions, Dr. Pugh is also a very entertaining speaker who is able to share important points with a bit of southern humor.

Dr. Chris Lupton of the graduate faculty at Texas A & M, gave a report on the Suri Luster Research Project and Darby Vannier, Executive Director of the Alpaca Registry, offered an update on the ARI, EPD Project.

Dr. Pam Walker

Alonso Burgos

“Neurological Diseases of Camelids,” was a subject addressed by Dr. Pam Walker. Liz Vahlkamp, Chairperson of the Suri Network Product Development Committee, offered an update on the progress of the Product Development Committee and the Suri Fiber Harvesting Code of Practice.

Finished Product from Felting Clinic Felting Clinic participants were able to try their hand at determining how to handle difficult births and when to call the vet. Dr. Pam Walker led breeders through the Parasitology Clinic with Fecal Analysis Lab, teaching the procedures used to perform fecal exams on the farm. The Suri felting class was taught by Donna Rudd and participants completed beautiful projects felting Suri fleece. Dr. Dick Walker and Susan Tellez conducted a live demonstration of the Suri network Data Classification Program offering a format for owner participation in the EPD data collection process. Suris were provided for this workshop by Colorado breeders, Kathy Gilliland, Diamond Valley Alpaca Donna Rudd Ranch and Amber Isaac, Silken Suri Alpaca Ranch. The Suri Network all Suri Fleece Show had 244 entries from across the country and there were 104 Spin Off entries. Senior Judges, Jude Anderson and Amanda VandenBosch judged the fleece entries and they were assisted by Apprentice

Judges, Laurel Shouvlin and Ursula Munro. Each year the Suri Network offers scholarships for two apprentice judges so that they may gain experience judging Suri fleece under the guidance of Senior Fleece Judges. Coveted suri sculptures by Judy Steele of Polo Fields Farm/Alpacas by Design, were awarded to the champion Suri fleeces as well as ribbons to the winners in each class. The Spin Off entries were judged by Donna Rudd. This year a Fiber Arts and a Skein competition were added to the competitions Carl McGill and many beautiful projects were entered. Carl McGill was our judge for these two new events. A lively auction of donated items took place on Saturday night with Brett Kaysen as our auctioneer. Thank you to all who donated and purchased items at the auction and supported the work of the Suri Network. At the Suri Symposium each year we attempt to offer presentations that will be of valuable interest to all Suri network members and we look forward to your attendance at the 2011 Suri Network Summer Symposium. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie that takes place each year as Suri breeders from across the country meet to share experiences and new ideas.
