Here are Mourne Alpacas, we are obsessed with learning every day about our alpacas, their behaviour, their health, their husbandry, their welfare, and their safe keeping. With this passion for learning, our herd owner Michelle has been trained and affiliated by the British Alpaca Society to deliver the BAS current certified course, with details below. We regularly provide this course at our farm and our training centre.

Obsessed with learning, in all available formats, we have launched the FIRST EVER alpaca webinar series, MOURNE ALPACAS WEBINAR™ SERIES 1 – Summer 2020, and plan to build on this initiative to bring the best of the professionals in our alpaca community worldwide to your laptop, mobile phone or any screen near you! Our first series commencing May 2020 is detailed below.

For any of our training initiatives, or to discuss nominating yourself or someone else as a presenter in our future webinar series, please contact with TRAINING ENQUIRIES in your subject line of your email.
