Training courses

  Handling and Husbandry
Prior knowledge assumed: nil.
So you’ve decided to take the plunge! This course is for you and covers all aspects of alpaca husbandry, handling, and nutrition. You’ll learn herding, catching and holding, foot-trimming, injections, oral drenching, the all-important condition scoring, and  - perhaps most important of all - ‘when to call the vet’. This is a busy day and hard work for all involved…but great fun!
There’s a lot of manual handling involved so farm clothes and wellies please. There are always plenty of questions so the timing may be a little ‘loose’.
Course limited to 8.
Duration: 1 day
Hours: 9-5 (includes lunch with wine, and refreshments).
Cost: Nil (included in your Farbrook Starter Herd).
There’s plenty of B&B accommodation locally.

We offer ‘full livery’ (agistment) to your alpacas. You might be interested in this facility for a number of reasons.

  • You want to benefit from alpaca farming but have no land at present. This way you can get your business started straightaway.
  • If you have limited land you could manage your herd separation (males/females/weanlings) this way.
  • You want to ‘ease into’ alpaca ownership knowing someone else experienced is always on hand to look after your alpacas.
  • You have bought a single alpaca you particularly wanted and it will be some time before you will buy the rest of the group (alpacas must never be kept alone).

We will make a daily, weekly, or monthly charge (based on your needs) that covers all the alpaca’s needs. Then we look after them as if they were our own. Rates are higher in winter than summer (due feed requirement), but discounts are available if you agist multiple alpacas with us.

You can have access to your alpacas whenever you wish, secure in the knowledge that you and all our other agistment owners always conform to our safety and security rules!
