Peter a keen interest in alpacas, having published a guide for vets and breeders in NZ, and holding the post of president of the NZVA camelid branch.
In our previous vet sessions, we have studied the birthing process, and also taken a good look at the care of the newborn cria. Now attention turns to covering the females.
Peter joins us from New Zealand for this presentation, which he has subtitled “Alpaca Sex – the hands-on approach!”. This session will explore all of the facets of the breeding process, when we all aim for a straight-forward and successful sit!
