Supreme Champion Suri 2009
The 2009 National Supreme Suri was intermediate male, Surico Mantavani. Following his big win he was only in New Zealand long enough to be certified before Ann Marie Santesson Gerber of Osterlen Alpacas in Sweden selected him as the suri herdsire for their new suri herd. Surico Mantavani has produced exciting progeny in his new Swedish home, a legacy for the Swedish alpaca industry.

Surico Ballerina was a Senior Female when she won the National Supreme title in 2007. Pregnant and still in her first fleece she stole the show with her fineness and lustre, traits that she still exhibits today.
She has been retained in the Surico Herd as one of their elite females, proving her worth with progeny such as Surico Corsair and Surico Coppelia, both broad ribbon winners.
