    Our herd was classified using the SHIP program last week along with two other herds, we all were blown away by how much we learned. It cost less than going to a show and the whole herd got evaluated. I can't express enough the benefits of SHIP.

    WOW! My experience with SHIP was amazing. I learned things I didn't know about my herd and verified things I did know. I'm making better breeding and purchasing decisions as a result of my SHIP experience. In fact, my clients are making more informed purchasing and breeding decisions as well. It was absolutely well worth the time and money - an investment in the future of Shambalah Alpaca Ranch!

    Our herd was evaluated in the SHIP program in April 2014. The whole experience was educational for us and the results validated our breeding decisions and the direction we are going. We highly recommend this program to all Suri breeders. We will definitely use the information as a tool when making purchasing decisions in the future.

    This past week we participated in the Suri Herd Improvement Program - S.H.I.P. with the Suri Network. Gary & I have an evaluation system we have used for years and it is interesting to compare our evaluations with the S.H.I.P. classification program. We highly recommend this program to everyone. It will not only be very beneficial to the Suri industry but also for our individual breeding programs.

    We believe the SHIP program has a significant role to play in our industry. Quality standards and product specifications can only be enhanced by this program. We found the interaction to be very educational. The findings defiantly had an impact on our breeding program. SHIP has proven quit viable in identifying our best producers and correlates well to our more profitable animals per overhead costs. In conclusion, we hope this program grows and becomes a standard in our industry.

    We just finished our SHIP classifcation today! Three days of AWESOME! What a terrific experience...hands on assessment of each and every animal looking at clearly defined characteristics. Each characteristic discussed and scored for each alpaca, with great dialog and opportunity for questions throughout! More to come on this later, but for now, just WOW and thank you Suri Herd Improvement Program.
