Not sure about using alpacas as guards or just don’t want the hassle of shearing and husbandry for alpacas, well we are now providing a herd guard leasing service. The guards are leased in pairs at a cost of $50 per week + GST. Delivery within a 100km radius is included. We will commence this service in 2019.
All alpacas are vaccinated and drenched and guaranteed to work.
So if your not sure about managing alpacas this is a perfect opportunity to observe and learn without taking on a long term commitment.
One of the issues associated with buying guards is that they are a very long lived animals and lambing season is usually an 8-13 proposition, hiring eliminates the need to feed and manage guards when they are not being used.
In the long term buying may be a cheaper option but hiring may be the most convenient option for some farmers.
