Safflower



It isn't often you even find full Accoyo Caligula daughters on a sales list. More often than not, breeders retain these girls for their own foundation herd. We are willing to part with just one of our Caligula daughters - Accoyo Amazona or Accoyo Safflower, but not both!

Safflower is a product of Greg Mecklem's breeding program. She was originally purchased at the 2003 Parade of Champions Sale. Greg Mecklem's comments on her, "In spite of her delicate name, this Caligula daughter is big, proud, dense and soft. Her brillant fleece as a micron count of 17.9 microns with a very soft handle. With her solid frame, Safflower promises to be a great full Accoyo production female. Her dam, Sajama, was our first choice in the 1995 Peruvian import."

Here at our farm, we have two generations of Safflower's offspring to reflect what a tremendous production female Safflower truly is. Her daughter, Accoyo Mayflower and her grandaughter Accoyo Sunflower are both here at Ideuma Creek. They are incredibly dense, fine, large-boned, beautiful females.

Accoyo Safflower is bred to our 8X Champion, 16X blue ribbon winning herd sire, SA Accoyo Invasion for a cria in June 2011. We can only expect a large-boned crimpy, fine cria out of these two elite-fleeced parents.
