2020 EPDs are now Posted Online!

The 2020 Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) calculation has been completed and is now online. All fleece samples that were submitted by the deadline made it to SGS and were included in the calculation. Dr Enns Producer's Report will be available shortly.

Please note, alpacas that have had no trait data submitted, but are related to alpacas with data, may have EPDs recorded. EPDs are calculated up to four generations back from an alpaca with submitted data.

To learn more about EPDs and how to use the data visit the resources below.

Plan ahead for the 2021 EPD calculation

Fiber testing can be done year-round, you never have to wait to submit fleece samples for testing!

The Shear Report Instructions page provides the steps for submitting samples for testing. User entered traits — birth weight, weaning weight, birthing ease, and fleece weight — can be entered on each alpacas trait data page.
