Meal Time Alpaca Pellets have been developed as a supplementary source of feed to meet the nutritional needs and well-being of your animals, or just as a treat!
Mostly Alpacas can survive with pasture and hay, or other sources of fibre, but at various times supplementary feeding can become necessary, especially if pasture is in short supply, or an increase in growth rates are needed. In late pregnancy, when demand for nutrients increases, the capacity of the Alpaca to be able to eat enough pasture to fulfil the nutritional requirement decreases, and thus supplementary feeding helps ensure the health and wellbeing of your animals.
Approximate on a DM basis. Analysis may vary slightly due to grain variances beyond our control.
- Introduce Meal Time Alpaca Pellets gradually to allow digestive systems to adjust to the higher starch intake.
- Alpacas should always have access to a quality fibre source such as hay, chaff, pasture or silage to maintain a healthy digestive system.
- Do not allow individual animals to over consume. When feeding a group of animals spread the feed along the trough to allow for easy access by them all.
- Always have fresh, clean water available at all times.
- Keep feed fresh and feeding containers clean.
- Feed Meal Time Alpaca Pellets plus Zinc from January to mid-April to help with the prevention of Facial Eczema.
