DO ALPACAS NEED SHEARED?
Huacaya alpacas need to be sheared annually to ensure no heat stress during summer, suri alpacas are sometimes sheared every other year. We run a shearing day in early Summer where everyone is welcome to come to us to get their animals sheared. This is usually more cost effective as the shearers have a minimum cost per venue. For a small fee we can also organise annual vaccinations, worming, vitamins, toenail trimming and teeth checks etc. Our shearing days in 2023 will be 6th and 7th April – volunteers welcome! Please contact us if you would like to join in on these days.
