Alpaca Husbandry and Handling Day (British Alpaca Society, Modules 1 – 5)


This introductory workshop is held at Acton Hill Alpacas, Newcastle under Lyme, ST5 4FE, (just over a mile from junction 15 of M6), whose excellent facilities allow us to run the workshops comfortably - whatever the weather.

This is a full-on practical day where we look at basic husbandry and handling- whilst also being fun and informative. There will be plenty of opportunity to get hands-on with the alpacas and to ask lots of questions. Full workshop notes are provided at the start of the day and include lots of additional useful information for reference once you are back home. 

What to Wear  

You will need to wear appropriate clothing for the weather and time of year. Please bring outdoor boots or shoes for dipping in disinfectant before entering the paddocks. This is a health and safety requirement to adhere to farm biosecurity.
