Windsong Valley Iceman - The future of the fleece industry
Australia’s only back to back National Supreme Champion
Sire: Purrumbete Highlander 2402
Dam: Purrumbete Icestar
Why Iceman? Iceman's rareness is his ability to on throw crias that grow into adults that maintain cria fleece qualities into older ages. In this species as against the merino, this is a rare quality. It is this essential element of productivity that will make alpacas a commercially sound option for the Australian farmers one day. This is where the industry must go to prosper.
