My priorities in the cold weather – feeding and mucking out

EPISODE NOTES

In this episode, I muse on keeping the alpacas fed and watered and keeping me warm via mucking out.

Feed prices continue to rise – over the last year, hay went up by 15% and feed-wheat by 40%. (Source: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/animal-feed-prices). It works it’s way through to the bags of feed and bales of hay we need to buy.

Stay warm, stay well and if you can, spend some time with an alpaca.
