Alpacas and other livestock
A common question is can I run my alpacas with other livestock - the answer is YES!
Alpacas can bond well with other types of animals. Naturally, alpacas and large aggressive dogs are not a good combination, but there are many cases of quiet dogs mixing well with alpacas.
Individual alpacas have been very successfully run with sheep and goats to act as fox guards. The alpacas tend to bond with the foster herd and they are naturally aggressive towards foxes.
If running with different livestock, alpacas will pick up the internal parasites associated with the other animals and should be put on the same drenching regime.
Because of the risk of the alpacas being kicked, caution should be used if running them with cattle or horses.
