Description

Ready to start alpaca farming but wondering how to choose the right alpacas for your herd? Join us on the farm and in the barn to meet the herd and learn what to look for when purchasing alpacas. Wondering what makes one alpaca more expensive than another? What factors come into play when pricing an alpaca? We will help you understand how to build a herd and a herd acquisition budget. We will discuss:

  • How many alpacas make a healthy herd
  • Different Herd Models & What Alpacas to Select for Each
  • Fibre
  • Conformation (Body Style)
  • Pricing, Packaging
  • Breed Standards
  • Planning for herd growth & development
  • Purchasing for Profitability

This workshop is geared to those who have never farmed before, or veteran farmers who are looking to diversify their farms and learn more about alpacas as a livestock option. Bring your questions. Dress for any weather and farm conditions as we will be getting hands-on with the herd!
