• What Alpacas Need and General Information

    The last twenty years has shown us how easy it is for anyone to keep alpacas. These wonderful animals have adapted very well to life in Britain and are now in the fields of many properties throughout the country. Alpacas are hardy animals whose forebears have spent thousands of years grazing on seasonally diverse pastures in very harsh weather conditions. Here at Inca Alpaca we have developed a husbandry regime that keeps our alpacas healthy, happy and in optimum condition. We can divide basic alpaca care and husbandry into eleven areas. more »

    Raising alpacas, whether for fun or profit, is a responsibility.

You will need good information about fencing, shelters, equipment, haltering, caring for feet and teeth, good nutritional information, parasite control, pasture management, and transportation. You'll also need to learn how to combat environmental extremes: keeping them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And let's not forget veterinary care, first aid and assembling handy lists of good resources! more »
