Alpaca Support Services

Husbandry

Having trouble trimming toenails? Worried about giving injections? We can show you a way of making these routine tasks a lot easier for both of you.

We can arrange to visit and help you carry out these tasks and to discuss your issues and show you how we can help. Or, alternatively, why not book on to one of our courses?

Would you like to show your alpacas? We can help you and your alpacas prepare for showing or, we can train a show team on your behalf. Several of the UK’s largest breeders have “show” alpacas trained by Jay.

Shearing

Jay is a trained alpaca shearer and is able to shear small herds. Using his advanced handling knowledge he endeavours to make this procedure as gentle, calm and stress free as possible.

Farm Planning

Using a range of skills, we are able to help you plan your farm to obtain the most efficient use of your land and movement of your herd.

With a number of experts at hand, we are also able to help advise on planning permission, disease and vermin control.

Herd Evaluation

As a qualified Judge, Jay can offer you a full herd evaluation. This can be a really useful tool in establishing where you are and, more importantly, help you decide where you might like to go with your breeding program. The scope of the evaluation can be tailored to your needs and charging is primarily on a time cost basis.

Please phone to discuss your requirements and to obtain a cost.

Screening

The importation and exportation of alpacas can be complicated. Many registries require alpacas to be “screened” before being allowed on to the relevant registry. Without this it becomes difficult to register offspring and, ultimately, to sell them. As a judge, Jay is also a qualified alpaca screener and is happy to work with clients and registries both at home and abroad.
