Salem Alpacas Farm Services have expanded as the years have gone by, to now include: the sale of alpacas, both breeding stock and fibre producers, otherwise better known as "pet stock" and animal boarding. We also offer support with farm set up and management, which may include; shearing, needling, toe nail trimming, and on occasion assistance with breeding practices.
We recognize the importance of educating the public about alpacas, and because alpacas are an alternative livestock, and differ from cattle and sheep, their handling techniques, husbandry needs, and feed issues must all reflect this difference. Our efforts include hosting seminars on husbandry skills & proper alpaca handling. We have participated in training OSPCA Officers on how to properly assess an alpaca. As well, we have been the guest speaker at schools, guilds, churches and clubs. Let us know if you would like us to be involved at your function.
