LLAMA NUTRITION: AN OVERVIEW LLAMA NUTRITION: AN OVERVIEW
Herbal Stimulation of Lactation in Llamas
My farm has had over 250 births since 1987. The vast majority of these were uncomplicated and unassisted births. Through the years, we experienced occasional problems with milking especially in first time mothers. We realized very early that we would need to supplement nutrition at times. Alpaca Academy Author: Thomas W. Riley
Feeding Camelids
While the following is particularly directed at the llama, most is applicable to the alpaca and other members of the genus Lama. In their native environs, the alpaca shows a grazing preference toward moist lush forages, while llamas will tend to prefer more coarse dry vegetation, being more of “cafeteria style” eaters.  International Llama Association
Optimizing Llama Nutrition
“Anyone can feed, but nutrition requires some effort.” Would you like to hear strong opinions on llama nutrition? Ask llama owners, university camelid specialists, and representatives of well-known feed companies.  Dr. Norm Evans, DVM
