Description:

ATA Cambridge Centurion has become the leading black super sire in the UK. He has outstanding parents and an impressive show record to his name including back to back Best Black Huacaya at the BAS National Show 2006/7 and his progeny have been vertually undefeated in 2008, 2009 and 2010. After years of searching around the world for a herd sire of this quality we are pleased to have him on farm and be able to offer him for service to other breeders of quality black alpacas.

This outstanding herd sire has a solid and heavy frame that is correct and he displays a powerful and true to type head. His fleece is a uniform blue black colour with no contamination and carries an advance fleece type usually only seen in top line white huacayas.
