Llama Husbandry Training
Having over 12 years experience in keeping llamas, we offer half and full days to new owners of llamas or for those thinking of purchasing llamas. We can assist you in making your decision as to what type of camelid to purchase and which animals will suit your requirements and facilities the best.
We would not classify camelid husbandry as difficult, however it is more specialised in its own way to that of general farm stock or horses. It is always good practice to be able to understand the differences in management in order to ensure you can provide good welfare and land management for your stock.
Our sessions include elements such as basic welfare of llamas, llamas needs and requirements throughout the different seasons of the year. Handling of llamas, herding, haltering, leading, training to trek and pack training. Health management techniques and advice on health issues. The list is extensive within these titles, however we aim to cover what your requirements are and tailor sessions to achieve your objectives.
Half Day sessions include tea /coffee / biscuits.
Full day sessions also include a short trek and a buffet lunch.
For costs please contact us with your requirements and objectives as we tailor the session to suit you. Prices start from £65 per person for a Half Day Session. (approx 4hrs).
