We are no longer breeding or keeping alpacas due to Bovine TB in alpacas in the UK. Our herd contracted Bovine TB, from the purchase of a small group of alpacas from a well known source in the UK.
The devastating results of the infection that spread through our alpaca herd left us heartbroken. DEFRA were killing our animals and their young cria following positive blood testing, after post mortem examinations only one of the many, many that they killed had any signs of Bovine TB.
We could no longer face breeding alpacas into the future, the pain of the loss was too traumatic.
We no longer have any alpacas, we now breed Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys, have a look at our web site at www.wellground.com
