Alpaca Blend is a nutritious food formulated to be fed to growing and lactating alpacas and llamas, and is also an ideal diet for maintenance.
Generally an alpaca’s total daily feed consumption will be between 1.2% to 1.5% of body weight for maintenance, 1.5% to 2.5% growing, 1.5% to 2% late gestation and 1.5% to 3% during lactation. The level of blend fed will vary depending on a number of factors such as body weight and condition, pregnancy, lactation (level of milk production), activity and quality of the roughage being fed. The portion of blend fed will generally vary between 10% and 75% of total daily feed intake. Roughage is an important part of their daily intake and must be available at all times.
