Janelle and Byron can take care of all your husbandry needs. We can support your education of how to care for your alpacas independently as well.

Shearing session usually starts around late October, early November through to mid March and bookings for this service is essential. Byron has built a purpose tilt table that enables us to secure alpacas as stress free as possible on their side. We take as much care as possible while shearing saddle off first to reduce guard hair contamination and to ensure the quality of the fleece is not comprised.

We also support many owners with their quarterly husbandry needs including toenail trimming, annual 5 in 1 vaccinations, Vitamin ADE injections, and drenching. Contact us today for a quote on all your shearing and husbandry needs.

We shear all over Tasmania
