About IAR Database

One of the prime assets of the Australian Alpaca Association is its pedigree register - the International Alpaca Register (IAR). The IAR is recorded on eAlpaca - an online system designed and built specifically for the AAA by Simplify Solutions. The register records full details of animals' pedigrees and ownership. The maintenance of an accurate pedigree database for every registered alpaca in Australia is of prime importance for the genetic improvement of the national herd and provides the basis for commercial buying decisions. All AAA members are recommended to register their breeding stock and buyers are encouraged to buy animals that have a pedigree registration certificate issued by the Australian Alpaca Association.

Through DNA Testing and recording of certified breeding male status, the Association offers to breeders and prospective buyers, a credible pedigree with fundamental genetic assurance. This testing also forms a pool of genetic information that enables leading edge research with the best genetic technology the world has to offer.
