Could I keep alpacas? Questions to answer before you buy

Could I keep alpacas?

Seen alpacas and think you would like some of your own? You need to know what is involved and the questions you should answer before buying an alpaca.

  1. Have you got enough? money; land; knowledge; capacity
  2. Business or hobby?
  3. Large or small?
  4. Breeding or pets?
  5. Will you show them?

Looking from another perspective:

  • Why do you want alpacas?
  • Who will you get them from?
  • What kind will you get?
  • Where will you keep them?
  • When will you get them?

Take your time and connect with the right people and knowledge. Take a training course. Get the right equipment. You need to plan and prepare for success in keeping alpacas.
