Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch
At Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch we strive to preserve the health of our animals with a continual focus on quality. Our husbandry practices, feed, supplies and other needs are developed in consultation with our veterinarian, agricultural management company, feed specialists and of course, other breeders. We work with our animals enough to know their personalities and general appearances so that we can prevent before there is a need to treat.
Water tests, annual soil tests and hay analysis combined with quality grain and supplements help us know the nutrient levels we are feeding. We compare what we provide with their blood work to determine actual value and absorption of the alpaca.
Weights, body score, histograms and observation of behaviors are routine at Golden Spirit. This also allows us to handle the animals enough so that they can be led easier when there is a need.
Our "huggable investments" are fun to watch and even more fun when we are involved in their antics. Play time gives them a chance to "work off" their energy and it gives us a chance to emotionally relax after our day of work.
