We are livestock farmers just like you, and we have struggled this season with our feed needs. We raise show quality breeding alpacas. Proper nutrition is vital to the success of our carefully monitored and strategized genetic improvement program. We are also passionate about using sustainable farming methods in our farming and we want to teach others how to do the same.
We have been producing aquaponic fodder here in Northern Colorado at the Center for Economic Excellence and feeding it to our show quality alpacas. We are very selective about what we feed, and this has been a very exciting addition to our feeding process.We will be regularly reporting on our results with this new technology through our Mountain Sky Alpacas website, as well as through our Nourish the Planet Membership Community.
