Husbandry Services

Many small scale livestock owners, can find it difficult to carry out some of the routine husbandry procedures on their alpacas or pygmy goats. We offer our  mobile husbandry service and are fully insured to carry out many procedures, (see details below). It could be that you just don't feel confident about basic husbandry, if this is the case, book our services for a "hands-on husbandry" session and we can show you how to carry out basic husbandry on your own animals. (This service is offered in Essex and East Anglian region only).
