Shalimar Alpacas Can Help You Get Started
The joy of small scale farming can be yours. Shalimar Alpacas is a family-owned farm dedicated to raising livestock in an environmentally sustainable fashion. Come take advantage of our experience. We are commitment to running a clean operation, and the good health of our animals shows that commitment every day.
Today the farm is home to 55 alpacas with eight expected births this year of 2017, chickens, several barn cats, and our farm guard dog “Malreaux”
All drive-by breedings are 50% down at the time of breeding and the balance is due within 45 days of breeding. Confirmation of pregnancy is ascertained by spit testing 14 days after breeding, progesterone blood testing 21 days after breeding, or ultrasound performed by a trained ultrasonographer. The owner of the female is responsible for establishing the pregnancy confirmation. If the breeding was not successful, no additional payment is due until the female is rebred and has a positive result.
Shalimar Alpacas stands behind all of our proven herdsires. Shalimar Alpacas offers a 14-day live birth guarantee with all bred females and breeding services to your female. If the breeding is not successful or if the cria expires within 14 days of birth, we will offer another breeding at no additional cost and will continue to work with you until there is a successful breeding with a viable cria. Should there be a loss of a pregnancy twice, it is required to have the female checked out by a veterinarian knowledgeable about alpacas to ascertain whether the female is able to carry to term. At this time, you may choose to breed to another one of your females at no additional cost.
