The Alpaca Shepherd walks both new and experienced breeders through the process of building barns and fences, caring for cria, breeding and reproduction, delivering babies and creating a breeding program. The text is accessible and easy to understand, free of jargon and technical terms. The book is based on the author’s 20 years of hands on experience with alpacas and was edited by prominent Alpaca Veterinarian Dr. Paul Jones. The resource section is a comprehensive guide about where to buy everything from fences to fine alpaca sweaters.
