Country Feeds® Llama and Alpaca Feed is a supplement feed designed to be fed to growing and adult maintenance llamas and alpacas on pasture and in confinement with free access to hay and/or forage.
Baby llamas (crias) should be fed in a separate creep feed area to assure access to feed.
Feed at the rate of 1-2 LB per head per day as supplement to pasture and/or free-choice hay.
Animals engaged in high levels of activity should have feeding rates increased to 2.0 – 2.5 LB per head per day as supplement to pasture and/or free-choice hay depending upon desired body condition.
Provide plenty of fresh clean water at all times.
Any changes to the feeding routine should be implemented gradually
Establish a regular vaccination and deworming program with the help of your veterinarian to ensure overall health
Placing large at stones in the bottom of feeding troughs can slow the rate of intake and aid in preventing the incidence of choke
Monitor body condition and adjust feeding levels to achieve and maintain desired body condition
