Why Alpacas from Kopavi Ranch?

Well Trained
The alpacas of Kopavi Ranch are easy to work with, easy to show, and safe to be around because they are all trained using Jim & Amy Logan's Click and Reward method. It's a very positive and gentle way of not only training alpacas, but of getting to know each of them on a very personal level. Once you interact with an alpaca trained with this method, you'll wonder how you lived without it.


All the Alpacas at Kopavi Ranch are chosen expressly for their potential to produce many more generations of colorful alpacas.  For more info click here.

Superb Mothers

Many of the Alpacas of Kopavi Ranch are from lines produced by excellent mothers. This means they always have plenty of milk for nursing, are very attentive, and some are even known to nurse more than one baby at a time. After the cria is born, it's also very easy to tell when they're ready to breed again, and they usually become pregnant with just one breeding.

Our Experience

Having had alpacas since 1994, we couldn't help but learn a few things over the years.  Though we have a lot of our own opinions on things, we like to encourage our customers to find what's right for them too.  We're more than happy to be as involved with getting you going as you'd like, but also recognize that what we think isn't written in stone.  So take some of our experience and add it to your info stock piles to give you a great base in getting going in the industry!  To learn more click here.
