Did you know?
Alpacas are closely related to Llamas, they form a group of four species known as the South American Camelids. These are: Alpaca, Llama, Vicuna and Guanaco.

How many alpacas per hectare depends on the DSE ( Dry Sheep Equivalent) of your area. You can check this with your Department of Primary Industries. As a guide the DSE/ha in good soil and high rainfall might sustain 10DSE/ha where as in dryland areas it might only be 1.5DSE/ha.

The alpaca menu consist of pastures and/or Hay and/or Alpaca mix. They are grazers in principal and love browsing. Beware of toxic plants in the garden e.g. Oleander, Rhododendrons, Bougainvillea, Azalia, Frangipani etc and check your pastures regularly for noxious weeds such as Fireweed, Patterson's curse, Deadly Nightshades etc. Alpacas need to have access to good quality drinking water.
