Chachani Mochica has a soft handling, lustrous fleece with good crimp, bundling and fleece length along with a great presence. He was Champion Junior male at HBM in 2008. He won Champion Commercial fleece at Royal Canberra in 2009. Mochica is a well framed male and keen to work. Jim Watts comments: "In April 2013 at Glen Waverly Alpacas (Betty Whitten), Glen Innes, New South Wales, I classed all of the 9 progeny (3 males as potential sires; 6 top breeding females) of Chachani Mochica as stud animals. One of the daughters, Glen Waverly Helen, grew 95 millimetres of fleece for 6 months at 13 months of age. In the previous fleece, Helen tested 15.8 micron for fibre diameter. I can't recall seeing a longer Huacaya fleece for only 5 months fleece growth. It is genetic seedstock like this that will allow us to breed Huacaya alpacas that can produce combing length wool throughout their lifetimes. Also, such occurrences allow us to think in terms of breeding alpacas that can reach combing length in 6 months and be shorn twice a year. This is exactly what we have already achieved with SRS(R) Merino sheep."

13/06/13 - New England Alpaca Show
Four subscribers were represented at the New England Alpaca show consisting of fleeces and lead animals over the long weekend of the 8th & 9th of June. They were Glen Waverly Alpacas (Betty & Adrian Whitten), Sunline Alpacas (Jeff & Jill Willis), Towarri Alpacas (Stuart & Fiona Marshall) and Glenhope Alpacas (Bronwyn & David Mitchell). Everyone took home some ribbons from the event which attracted 44 fleeces and 136 animals. In the fleece section Glenhope entered 7 fleeces and received 3 Championships, 2 Reserve Championships and the Supreme Champion. Glen Waverly received a Reserve Championship. The judge commented on the weight of the fleeces and the quality of the presentation which is encouraging. In the animal classes Sunline received 2 Championships and a Reserve Champion and Glenhope received a Championship and 2 Reserve Champions.
24/04/13 - Castle Hill Alpaca Show
Castle Hill Show, near Sydney, Australia, on the 9 March was another great show for SRS(R) studs. Walkley Fields (Richard Brennan) and Gunnamatta Alpacas (Sue Maynard and John Hay) had a very succesful day collecting 7 out of 10 Champions, with Walkley Fields taking out Supreme Huacaya Alpaca and Sire's progeny.
Judge Joanne Ham commented on the "super softness" of the animals.
