ALPACA NEWS

Most days on Kokopele Alpaca Farm are uneventful. We spend the day feeding, cleaning the barn or pastures and watching the alpacas graze, play and socialize, however other days there are happenings that need attention. A new arrival of a cria, fighting males, scheduled breedings, yearly shearing, deworming and general health checks.

    Alpacas, with their heavy, warm coats, obviously enjoy the cooler months much more than the dog days of summer.  On those days in the 90's with high humidity heat stress is a big concern.  We shear in the spring, put up lots of fans, provide
