New Sowing & Growing Guide for Alpacas and Llamas

Posted: 08/11/2021

Llamas and Alpacas have become more popular in the british countryside in recent years and we are increasingly asked to provide palatabale grazing mixtures which suit their specific needs. Due to their physiology and grazing habits Llamas and Alpacas tend to prefer lower growing, softer and leafier plants which are high in nutrition and fibre, but low in sugars. Ryegrasses are not used in this mixture as they can be too high in sugars and cause dietary issues. This mix contains a wide variety of palatable and nutritious grasses to provide a healthy and balanced diet without being too rich. Nutritious herbs can be added to this mixture, but they will limit herbicide options for weed control once sown.
