Alpacas are the perfect animal for small, medium or large land owners and below is a list of why ……….
Alpacas are extremely gentle animals which means small children are safe being amongst them.
Alpacas are easy to handle and don’t require any equipment to hold them, you can do it on your own.
Alpacas are easily halter trained and love going for walks.
Alpacas don’t challenge fences.
Alpacas are environmentally friendly; they have a very small foot print and are gentle on land.
Alpaca fleece is warmer and stronger than sheep wool and has no itch factor.
Alpacas poo in piles making collection very easy and is the ultimate natural fertilizer of all farm animals, it can be used on seedlings.
Alpacas are extremely inquisitive, they inspect everything you do and warn you when a stranger or a stray animal is on your property.
Alpacas have a strong herd instinct and will protect the family.
So Alpacas would make perfect in-expensive pets to keep, great flock guards to protect lambs and free range hens from predators.
They are producers of a high quality, soft, silky and valuable natural fibre so would be a good business opportunity to generate an income from a natural and sustainable source.
