Alpaca Pellets + Zinc

Alpaca Pellets + Zinc

Meal Time Alpaca Pellets plus Zinc have been developed to help in the prevention of Facial Eczema(FE). These pellets that include zinc should be fed over the most dangerous period for FE from mid-January to mid-April.

Once the danger period for FE is over, revert to just feeding Meal Time Alpaca Pellets to meet any nutritional requirements as a supplement to pasture and with access to other additional sources of fibre such as hay, straw or silage.


    Protein:  16.0%

    Approximate on a DM basis. Analysis may vary slightly due to grain variances beyond our control.


    • Introduce Meal Time Alpaca Pellets plus Zinc 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.
