The Chinese Protocol is currently on a shipment by shipment basis but we hope to have the accepted protocol signed off this year. As you may be aware WFR Exports flew 500 head of Alpaca to China in late 2014, we have another 600 head ready for export in Sept 2015 and another group of 400 will depart a month later. At this stage we are looking for interested breeders that are willing to supply China in 2016. You can register your interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
It was reported in the media earlier this year that the protocol for Alpaca to Korea was in place, in fact that is not the case however we are working behind the scenes to ratify the import requirements with DAFF. We will announce when this has taken place and the market is officially open for trade.
As the chair of the Export and Trade Facilitation Group of the AAA, Steve has been working hard over the last 6mths establishing these protocols. It will benefit all alpaca breeders wishing to market themselves overseas.

Wildflower Quarantine and Export
Wildflower Quarantine Station now Up and Running for all your Pre-Export Quarantine requirements.
Welcome to Wildflower Alpacas
Wildflower Alpacas is owned and operated by Sue and Steve Ridout, both of whom have an extensive knowledge of the Alpaca Industry. Collectively, we have 20 years of experience breeding Huacaya Alpacas, with great success in both Victoria and Western Australia.
On our farm, we take pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness in our facilities, and we keep organised, up-to-date health and breeding records. We are actively participating in the Q Alpaca program, with Q and non-assessed paddocks available.
For those who are considering investing in Alpacas, getting to know the breeder and their animals is a must. We welcome you to visit our farm online and in person, become acquainted with our friendly Cria and even take an Alpaca for a walk.
Steve has been active in both states through Show committees in WA, and as past President of the Western Region of Vic, including board member of the AA Co-operative.
Please take your time wandering through our site and feel free to contact us at any time for information on any of the areas that are of interest to you.
