Alpaca Meat producers
Alpaca meat is highly nutritious, lean and flavoursome. It is an excellent source of protein with little saturated fat or cholesterol, and is environmentally sustainable to produce. Able to withstand dry conditions for longer than most livestock, Alpacas are a great green fit for Australia’s farming climate. Their soft feet cause minimal soil disruption and ecosystem damage, far less than Australia’s traditional livestock. As most parts of the alpaca can be used for meat, alpacas offer a high yield with little wastage.
Some Australian farms have blazed the trail for large scale farming uses well-established breeding and husbandry principles to produce high-quality lean meat and fleece from their alpacas, as well as quality pelts.
