REDUCTION SALE BY AUCTION OF 138 ALPACAS Held on behalf of AzSu Alpacas, Letton, Norfolk on Sunday April 15th 2018

WOW even the sun shon at what we believe was the first auction of Alpacas in Norfolk. Nikki Lenk and her father Robert decided to downsize to enable them to pursue other options on their farm and made the brave decision to hold an auction - bearing in mind the Alpaca industry appears to have got over subscribed in recent years.  The herd was established with 5 Alpacas, back in 2000 by Nikki's Mum Sue who subsequently became an international authority on the breed. Sue sadly died in 2010 and Nikki took over.  Auctions can generate a lot of interest and this one did not disappoint. An excellent crowd of over 250 people resulted in 32 buyers from all over the country and an overall average of £313.57.    Females, especially the more youthful were in great demand. Males, as expected were harder work. Top price went to AzSu Savannah - a brown Huacaya bred 3yo female at £2,300. In fact all the top prices were Huacaya rather than the alternative Suri type (where the fleece hangs downward like "dreadlocks") and all were coloured animals. Next up was Acura - a black 5yo female at £1,700. Females continued to dominate with Pearle, a multi-coloured at £1,400, Nina a white/brown at £1,300 and Cerys and Pebbles, being black and dark grey respectively at £1000. The crowd looked terrified when the Auctioneer, Philip Dale, introduced lot 65 whose name was BOO !! However it did not stop them bidding and the dark brown 4yo made £850.

Not so much demand for the males with a top price of £260 for a 5yo black huacaya called Bentley.
