Back due to popular demand!

We are running our Husbandry Course again on Sunday 6th September 2020. 

Whether you are just at the beginning of thinking about owning alpacas or you already have your first herd and want to learn more about them this course is for you.

We have designed the day to teach you all the things we wish we had known when we started so that your journey into alpacas will be as enjoyable and successful as possible.

Running from 10am-4pm. 

Our introduction to husbandry course teaches you the basics of alpaca husbandry including:

  • Herding 

  • Handling

  • Herd Health

  • Food and nutrition

  • Body-scoring

  • Checking eyelid pallor

  • Pasture Management

  • Mating

  • Birthing Kits

  • Foot Care

  • Injections

  • Worming

  • Training

  • Shearing

  • Teeth Trimming

  • Fleece Skirting

  • Transporting Alpacas

  • Choosing the alpacas that are right for you

  • Take Home Information Sheets

  • Aftercare and Advice.


We recommend that two people attend the course as most jobs related to alpacas are much easier with two people. 

On booking we will send you a booking form with more information so we can tailor the day even further to your interests.
