Alpacas & Camelids Feed & Compounds
Camelids, such as alpacas and llamas, have a very efficient digestive system due to the longer retention time of digestion in the gut, compared with ‘conventional’ ruminants such as sheep and cattle. Forages can therefore provide the bulk of the major nutrients needed on a daily basis, but additional mineral supplementation will be needed to optimise health and performance.
Camelid Care Coarse Mix has been specifically formulated to meet the needs of growing and adult camelids fed forage rich diets. Ingredients used are quality pelleted materials – sugar beet pulp, wheat feed nuts and dried grass nuts, carefully blended with traditional coarse mix products – flaked maize, peas and beans, rolled oats, molasses and a unique customised mineral package to produce a 14.8% protein coarse mix. Mineral, trace element and vitamin levels are very high to ensure complete supplementation of the overall diet at the low daily feed rate
