Concentrates and Minerals

Post  Brookfieldllamas on Sun Aug 01, 2010 3:16 pm

What concentrates and minerals do you feed your llamas and when?
Opinions vary on this and it would be interesting to see what each of us does in terms of feeding.

In the summer I feed a small amount (1/4 cup) of general purpose course mix to all pregnant females, lactating females and weaned cria and add micronised linseed and seaweed for minerals and vitamins to this each day. In the winter this increases to about 1/2 cup.
Our llama not meeting any of the above criteria (ie male or adolescent females) just have a few grains of the mix and/or carrots.

I give my two a very small scoop (laundry stain remover scoop!) of camelid mix each day, mainly as a means of feeding them a pinch of garlic granules to ward off flies.
