Alpaca with sheeps for grazing
« on: May 29, 2015, 08:13:07 pm »
We have a four and a half acre field and hope to get four or five Alpacas and about half a dozen Ryeland sheep. Does anyone know if this combination will be enough to keep the grass down if I had it topped two or three times a year? Are there any other major problems in doing this?
Thanks Laura

Will you be able to rotate the sheep onto fresh grazing?
