Fodder Benefits

Feeding fodder to alpaca will have a dramatic effect on their health and performance. Alpaca will be healthier, happier and produce better quality fleece when fresh, green fodder is added to their daily diet. The digestibility of fodder is key for alpaca as their diets need to be well controlled.

Alpaca respond very well to adding fresh fodder to their diet. Some of these benefits include:

  • Better temperament and easier handling
  • Improved fiber quality
  • Stimulated appetite during times of extreme heat
  • Increased energy level
  • Boosted immune system
