Transcript: They are clean and intelligent. You can have 5-8 Alpacas per acre of land. Quiet peaceful and make small humming sounds to communicate. They come in 22 different registered colours. Can be raised by anyone and are safe around children. Alpaca fur can be made into sweaters, slippers and other items of clothing. Alpacas on youtube you should watch it. Thank you! Alpacas have no upper teeth. They have lower teeth and an upper dental pad, and do not bite. They eat grasses and chew a cud and have three compartments to their stomachs. They have soft padded feet with two toenails on each foot. Manure clean up is easy since they deposit in only a few places. Herds There are two breeds of alpaca; the Suri alpaca and the Huacaya alpaca. 90 percent of the world's Alpaca population are Huacaya and 10 percent are Suri. Alpacas are the best animals to have and I would like one someday. Alpacas Alpaca The Alpaca stands about 1.5 meters tall from head to foot. They weigh about 45 to 80 kilograms. And live 20 - 25 years. Alpacas are herd animals and prefer living with their friends. They will become stressed if separated. They are gentle curious creatures and behave well with children. Why Alpacas?

Transcript: Who can help? My solution: I was recently made aware of this issue when my friend started going through the process of becoming a foster parent & mentioned that she was going to start stocking up on all sizes of clothes and supplies so she can try to be prepared for any age child. I think that the situation is jarring enough for both the foster child and the foster parents and more help should be provided at the time the child arrives at the home. these children have been through enough - the least we can do is make sure they have more than the clothes on their backs when they arrive at a new home. Clothing & Supplies for Foster Children What's the problem? A child can arrive at a foster home at anytime of the day or night, some with only the clothes on their back. It is up to the foster parents to quickly procure the proper supplies to care for the child like clothes, hygiene products, diapers, formula, etc. A clothing and supplies bank for foster children. local schools and churches to hold clothing/diaper drives & fund raisers local businesses to donate supplies or to become sponsors DCF & Community Based Care of Central Florida to ensure foster parents are aware of us and/or to organize a way we can send supplies with the child Imagine getting a call at two in the morning that you will have a three month old in your care by seven AM . Why it is important to me: I would contact: A place foster parents or DCF can come get supplies they need for foster children at no cost to them. Free 'starter kits' for all age children including several appropriate outfits, hygiene products, and baby needs.
Transcript: To efficiently farm alpacas you need to keep grass healthy and green so you can run more alpacas on the land, having paddocks on rotation is also a good idea. Feeding is relativly easy but you need to make sure there is some hay if they don't have grass to eat but try to make sure they do have grass to eat. You can easily handle alpacas but you just have to be careful that you don't injure them. You can run them anywhere you like even on steep hills which you can't run animals like sheep on which means when you choose where you are going to put your alpacas you can think more about shelter and abundance of food. Alpacas respect their environment so make sure you respect it too. Clipping alpacas feet is essential but the most important thing is to protect your herd from diseases. diseases, clipping and shearing Alpacas 1.Primary industries and resources SA 2002, ‘alpaca-management and health’, fact sheet, January, viewed_12/08/11, ‹www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/37773/Alpaca_Management.pdf›. 2.Australian alpaca 2011, accessed 05/08/11, ‹www.alpaca.asn.au/›. 3.alpaca pastures 2011, accessed 12/08/11, ‹www.alpacapasturesva.com/our farm› 4.Gateway farm alpacas, pasture and paddock design 2011, accessed 12/08/11, ‹www.gatewayalpacas.com/alpacas/care-and-shelter/pasture-layout.htm›. 5.Herd management 2011, accessed 05/08/11, ‹www.pinjarraalpacas.com/manage.php›. 6.1996, ‘alpaca studs big buy’, Stock Journal, May 16, pp. -. 7.Nigel Austin, ‘The $200,000 blueblood from Peru’, The Advertiser, p. 8.Burgis brook alpacas, ‘Alpaca facts’, Burgis brook alpacas, pp. 1-7. shearing There are quite a few diseases that can effect sheep these inclued: Big bale eye, Blue tongue and CPD. Many of these diseases can be contagious and or deadly. Most of these can be prevented by vaccinations and can be treated. Alpaca fibre is not wool it is a fibre which is much softer and more expensive than sheeps wool. Alpaca fibre is used in gloves jumpers and sometimes even socks. When alpacas get older and their fleece gets courser you can use it in felt, instead of its normal wool like form, this can be used as a thin matt or it can be patterned and be used as decoration a bit like a painting. Stud male alpacas can cost a lot of money so if you manage to breed lots of them you can make a ton of cash, a few stud male alpacas have sold for over $200,000. So alpaca farming can be very profitable. Diseases Enviromental impact thank you To shear a sheep you need to be very skilled to get the all the wool and to get it done properly (like alpaca shearing) but basically you just need to have to have the sheep lying down and you have to get under the wool and let it fall off. Alpacas need their claws on their feet clipping annually because they become over grown, ugly and can even get in the way if they get too over grown and curly. Male alpacas also need their fighting teeth trimmed from when they are three years old and from then on they need to be trimmed annually so they don't injure each other. Alpacas Alpacas Alpacas You can only run four to six sheep on one acre of land and that is a lot less than alpacas. Sheep also need plenty of shelter like a protective shed or a barn Sheep The end product When sheep eat they don't just bite their food they rip it up out of the ground and just leave a small patch of mud. Sheep also have hard hooves which damage the ground and rip it up when they are walking. feeding Handeling and Transport Sheep can be moved in trailors, vans and trucks and they just need to be secured and tied up. sheep are relatively easy to handle they can just be a bit stubborn sometimes. Diseases Sheep Bibliography Alpacas don't cause much damage to their environment. They bite off the top of grass so it can grow back. They have padded feet so they don't do much damage when they are walking along the ground and they all poo in the same area so the whole paddock isn't covered so more food can grow. The reason alpacas are good at looking after their immediate environment is because they were originally from the Andes mountains where there was very little food so they had to preserve what there was. All this means you don't have to maintain as much food as you do for sheep Alpacas clipping Alpacas can be affected by quite a few diseases which inclued: Rabies, foot and mouth disease, west nile virus, bovine viral diarrhea virus and EPE. Some of these diseases are highly contagiouse and should be treated with care. Most of these can be prevented with vaccinations but not all the vaccinations are approved for alpacas. If one of your alpacas has one of these diseases you should get a vet to have a look at them but the most important thing is that you are careful. Shearing paddocks Alpaca management Efficient farming of alpacas Alpacas are easy to handle and will mostly do what you want them to do. They are also easy to herd in large groups but they sometimes don't get pleased when you move them. If you need to move them they
Transcript: Domestication: Alpacas Annie Lukasik What is Domestication? What is Domestication? When something is domesticated, it adapts to its environment and the needs of people for human use. Some uses for domesticated animals are work, food, clothing, and medicine. Because domesticated species need to be cared for and raised by humans, they are not considered wild. Alpacas were domesticated as a source of transporatation, clothing, and meat by the Andean people. Causes for Domestication As said earlier, Alpacas were domesticted so people did not have to walk eerywhere. Their wool made a great source of clothing that kept people warm and was tradeable to people who did not have access to the wool. Causes for Domestication Arrival in South America + The U.S. Alpacas arrive in South America, their ancestors being vicunas and guanacos and they emerged via selective breeding about 6,000 years ago. They were mostly bred and domesticated by the Andean people but were imported to the U.S. in 1984. Arrival Location of Origin Alpacas were selectively breeded in order to acomodate the needs of humans over 6,000 years ago. Their ancestors, the vicuna, is rare and protected. They are both in the camelid family. Location of Origin Pictures Effects of Domestication Effects + Impact Because alpacas are domesticated, they are able to be bred with a close wild relative, the vicuna, which results in offspring with high-quality wool that is not found in the wild. However, this selective breeding can negatively affect the vicuna. Although this does not impact the alpaca species as much, it disturbs the natural organization of the vicuna, increases the likelihood of inbredding, and an increase in disease. Impacts of Domestication Impact Because alpacas were selecively bred, little is known about their ancestry. It is also hard to find genetic ancestry of the alpaca because they were bred extensively for the Spanish Conquest of South America, resulting in a mass slaughter of all unecessary alpacas. Despite this, alpacas are one of the most "eco-friendly" animals, as even their wool is a sustainable option.

It also helps them walk across grass without digging it up. This is important as travel is one of their main reasons for domestication. This adaptation developed when they were domesticated, because the Andes are mostly desert, so it can be inferred that this adaptation developed when they were exposed to more vegetation. Adaptations and the Future Future Plan Future Plan I believe that in 100 years, many animals that ar now endangered are going to be domesticated. This will be to help recover the species before it goes extinct. I also believe that in 100 years, science will be trying to bring back animals that are currently extinct and domesticate them. This could be good for the species because it is no longer endangered or extinct, but it will have lost a lot of its wild instincts and patterns.
Transcript: Spitting Background Info. Along with camels and llamas, alpaca are classified as a camelid Alpacas are not a pack animal They are bred mainly for their fleece Not all apacas spit but ALL are capable of spitting Occasionally the spit contains air and saliva although commonly their spit contains acidic stomach contents Typically alpacas will spit at other alpacas and not humans Alpaca Alpaca are social animals- they live in herds Herds consist of an apha male, females, and young alpaca Alpacas can warn the herd of intruders by making noises Alpaca can protect itself by using its frong feet, spitting, and kicking Alpaca can make a variety of sounds. Danger- high pitched shrieking, "wark"- noise when excited, "cluck" or "click" - Friendly sounds Individuals vary, but most alpacas make a humming sound. Hums are often comfort noises, letting the other alpacas know they are present and content. Sounds Alpaca Fiber Behavior Life on a Alpaca Farm PBS Alpaca Farm Alpacas are sheared once a year-typically in the spring Each shearing produces 5 to 10 pounds of fiber The fiber is silky and soft They can use the fiber to make, clothes, scarves, gloves, hats etc.
