Why do some people prefer growing alpacas on their farms or fields when they are not the usual farm animal options? Why are they preferred over the other species or animals? Let`s take a look at few of the reasons for why people love having these animals on their farms.
• Alpacas try to keep themselves very clean like the cats and are very tidy and intelligent animals.
• The fiber produced by them is very soft, silk-like; better than the ones produced from the sheep. There is a great demand for this fiber in the market and this is one major reason for why people try to tame these animals in their farms.
• Though these animals do not come in appealing colors, there are color differences in the fiber produced by them like white, grey, black, brown etc all that which is good for coats and other kinds of warmer clothing. Their silkiness makes them look richer and premier. • Another reason for their huge number in the South-American country is because they are natives of those lands. They are seen in huge numbers in Chile, Peru etc…
• They are harmless and very safe to be tamed. They are very quiet animals who make little noise with their communication signals. Taming them and the revenues from their products are also eligible for tax exemptions. • They are ideal hobby farming options for 7-8 alpacas can be grown in just an area of 1 acre. So they need no extra pr spacious grounds to be grown on. They are one very good option for farming for they also do not need a special sheltered place and can silently live under trees or fallen tree`s shade. • They are very safe for children too for they rarely get agitated or overexcited and hence never attack human beings in any other situation unless and otherwise they are triggered.
These animals generally do not demand much from our side and hence they can be grown with not much difficulty. Apart from all these ease and comfort offered by them, their produce pays the best for the owners and this is one major reason, as stated above, for people to be interested in this type of breed. They edge out to be one excellent option for taming by an entire family for there are benefits for all of them. It is fun having them in your farms, their produce is great, there is absolutely no harm or disturbance caused by them and the best part, you will be able to make some money out of their produce. What else can you expect from such an obedient and silent animal?
