Livestock Workshops from Alpaca Magic

Supplier News

Livestock Workshops from Alpaca Magic are for those planning on raising livestock on a small farm or in a larger suburban backyard. From chooks in the backyard to alpacas on a small farm (and lots in between). Livestock can be rewarding in many ways. Livestock Workshops cater especially for the beginner, with only a small group so that individual needs can be met.

These livestock workshops are run in an informal atmosphere with ample opportunity to handle the animals, ask questions, take photos, and includes morning tea and lunch. Attendees are advised to wear comfortable outdoor clothing, shoes and hat, and bring a notebook & pen. Camera's are also welcome.

Depending on the students interests, topics at the livestock workshops include:

  • Husbandry & Management – where to start and what to expect
  • Conventional & alternate livestock
  • How to find the desired livestock, and what to look for as a buyer
  • Investment
  • Agistment (boarding livestock)
  • How to make a hobby farm viable
  • What to look for when choosing a farm
  • Care, handling & management (including feeding, vaccinating, worming etc) of poultry (chooks, bantams, ducks, geese, turkeys), horses and donkeys, dairy cattle and goats, pigs, alpacas & llamas.
