We recognise that it can be difficult for farmers, pet owners and even some small breeders to obtain the services of a shearer. Yaringa Alpacas offers a shearing service to assist small breeder, local farmers and pet owners. Shearing will be conducted at Yaringa during November.
The price is $30 per animal (for animals with one year's fleece on them). Unfortunately we need to charge extra for animals not shorn last year as they are harder to shear and cause more wear and tear on equipment. Included in the price, all animals will have their feet trimmed and their teeth checked (and where necessary trimmed).
We recognise that some small breeders and farmers will have already vaccinated their animals, but if you need them vaccinated we can do this for you. Other injections for breeding stock such as B12, Selenium, Drench, ADE etc are available on request where appropriate, prices to be advised.
If you need shearing done before, please don't hesitate to contact me. Likewise if you would like to go onto our contact list so you receive a booking email about two months prior to shearing, please contact me.
Yaringa Alpacas also organises two castration days each year in approximately December and May. Castration is done by our vet. Local breeders are welcome to book in boys to be castrated on these days as the more done, the cheaper per animal.
The next date is: May 2017 - register your interest NOW!
