You will learn how to be the kind of person a camelid loves to be around while still accomplishing your management job safely and efficiently. This book is full of new techniques that Marty has developed over the past 10 years. (It is not a revision of the old book but an entirely new textbook.)
Included is detailed information on every aspect of camelid ownership — from wool to weaning and from herding to halter fit.
The chapters on Medical Herd Management, Herd Maintenance and Husbandry guide you through the birth of a baby, help you cope with emergencies and teach you how to assist your veterinarian with medical procedures. Understand how your behaviour is the key to training. Learn how physics, not force, can help you accomplish previously challenging tasks, such as giving injections and toenail trimming.
Whether you have two llamas or 200 alpacas, The Camelid Companion by Marty McGee Bennett is for you.
400 pages, hundreds of illustrations. Clever icons help you navigate through every aspect of training and caring for your camelid.
