Paul & Jude Rylott of Melford Green are delighted to announce that Brillbury Alpacas have purchased their alpaca breeding programme.
The Melford Green herd was formed in 2004 with the purchase of 20 females from the Peruvian Dream import. The addition of elite genetics from some of the best UK breeders, an import from the renowned Snowmass herd in the USA and selected genetics from Australia have helped define the herd?s distinctive phenotype and reputation as one of the top commercial breeding herds in the UK.
Paul Rylott, owner of Melford Green said ?This is fantastic news for both our breeding programme and the industry as a whole. We have been developing the herd for nearly15 years employing some of the very best genetics from around the world. It was really important to us that the herd, and our breeding principles continued, so we were delighted when Mike & Anne decided to buy the programme.?
Paul added ?The facilities at Brillbury are truly first class. I?m sure that this, coupled with Anne & Mike?s enthusiasm will ensure that the herd will grow from strength to strength and we look forward to seeing them being awarded numerous championships?
Anne Shaw said ?Our herd was started in 2017. We wanted a group of quality females and really liked the style of animals that Paul & Jude produce. Since then we have continued to be impressed with the animals? high vigour and laid back nature, so when the opportunity arose to buy the Melford Green herd ? it was one that we just couldn?t let pass by.?
The Melford Green breeding females have been relocated from Darsham and now live in Brill, Buckinghamshire where proximity to some of the best UK alpaca genetics will ensure further improvement and show successes.
Some of the stud males will relocate to Brill, but for the start of the 2019 season, will remain in Darsham, from where we will be supplying alpaca stud services. We will continue to sell stud and companion animals. Our husbandry services will continue as before.
