Herd and Ranch Tools
We have created this business planning tool to help you through all of the
decisions that a prudent person would make prior to committing their
hard-earned capital to start an alpaca business.
The Alpaca Tax
Uncle Sam will pay for a portion of the cost of acquiring your herd, assuming
you are currently paying income tax and plan to continue paying income tax over
the next six years. Northwest Alpacas can help you better understand the new
tax laws, and benefits allowed when purchasing alpacas. We have even developed
a simple tool that will assist you in seeing just how your alpaca purchase will
affect your specific tax picture -- positively!
Would you like to see how your herd might grow? Select variables such as the
number of females, the ratio of males to females born, or the reproduction
rate. The tool does the rest!
Simply a fantastic tool! Enter the color of your dam and sire and see the color
probabilities from the breeding.
