As this memorable year winds down we wanted to pause and take a look at 2020's llama auction results. Interest in llamas continues to be strong. Anecdotally, we hear from breeders all the time that they are sold out and continue to receive inquiries, our personal experience supports that as well. Demand continues to outpace supply. But did the up-and-down 2020 economy have an effect on auction prices? In this post we'll share some 2020 statistics and how they compared to results from 2019.
It's that time of the year! Holiday shopping for our friends, families, and ourselves (why not?). We've compiled a list for llama enthusiasts, things we'd be delighted to receive ourselves and are confident the llama lover in your family will enjoy as well.
Weaning is very stressful for crias. In this article, I discuss recommendations on how to set up your crias for success during this time, including when to wean, where to wean, and what you can do to make the weaning period successful.
A few weeks ago I got it in my head that I needed a camera in our barn. It seemed like a fun thing to be able to pull it up and check on the llamas while I was away. While researching barn cameras, they all required internet access to be able to see a live view. This led me down a rabbit trail of how to get internet from the house to the barn. Luckily, I found an option to easily get WiFi in the barn and a barn camera setup with a process that took under an hour and costs less than $200!
