The Australia Alpaca industry completed its largest shipment ever to export its stock to China. The quality of breeding stock left Australia and reached China in a 10.5 hour long journey.
The export consisted of 525 stud animals’ cargo shipment that was sourced from Victoria and South Australia to China. This export is believed to be the largest export with number of alpacas ever shipped to another land in China.
The breeding animals were shipped on a chartered 747 freighter Singapore Airlines aircraft, last week. The alpaca animals are planned for a breeding herd at the Shanxi University. They will also be used for various genetic researches that transforms into wool color.
China is the largest textile producer in the world. Steve Ridout, the Western Australian Exported of Wildflower Alpacas and Quarantine Services said he is pleased to crack the market with this record breaking action. He has been exporting alpacas to New Zealand, Thailand, Europe, and the United States since 2008. However, China is a proliferous market opening up to great opportunities, and it is China that has given a substantial motivation for all breeders (large and small) to keep the alpacas in a healthy condition. This export is a major breakthrough for the Australian alpaca industry.
He added that China witnesses a lot of scope for growth as there are abundant people in the country that are willing to spend money.
The alpaca industry is extremely unique and the wool sets a notch above all the products in the market. The Chinese are seeking at the fiber industry and soon plan to develop an industry based on the same in the near future.
