  • Tracey's adventure - Popham Alpacas
    since Sunday Wed proved to be just as busy as the morning was spent checking all the farm animals and moving the irrigation system without this the whole farm would be a desert Matings and spit offs followed In the after noon i worked with the farm hand cleaning the paddock water troughs this is where i ended up burning my back and top of my bottom as the wind was so strong it kept blowing my t shirt up so much for only putting suncream on the bits on show ha ha Good job i could have a swim in the pool and a relaxing soak in the jacuzzi Thursday was an extremely hectic day the morning started as normal followed by tree lopping and clearing away terrain rather hard work in these temperatures don t you think i was then called back to the main farm as one of the expectant mothers who had gone in to labour earlier on in the morning was found to of had a twisted uterus the vet was called and with some help we managed to untwist it A little while later the vet was called back as the uterus had twisted again this time the vet decided there was no other option than to perform a cesarean on her as the cervix was not even open but she was clearly in labour Once the side door was opened up the cria who was breech was delivered i found all this fascinating and was so grateful to be taking part as this is not done on alpacas very often and only my 3rd day in NZ It took approx 1hour 30 minutes to stitch up the 4 layers of muscle Once the alpaca had come around she rejected the cria as she did not realise it was her baby It took 24hours for her to realise she had given birth and excepted the cria but still no placenta so not out of the woods just yet After all the excitement i went on a road trip with Nic to drop off some stud males at a place called Springs Junction this took us about 3 hours The country side was amazing On the way back we called into a place called Hanmer Springs here we went swimming in the sulphur pools which are heated by a natural spring the temp in different pools varied between 36C and 41C this had already had cold water added to it eventually got to bed about 11 30pm Friday was still busy in the morning we brought in all the imported animals owned by EP Cambridge to have there checks and be weighed this was my opportunity to have a sneaky peek at there fleeces Later on the vet came out to check on the alpaca that had had the cesarean She also had to vet some young stud males so as they could be certified as working stud males In the evening i got dragged

    birth and all went ok even though we had to fish one leg out He weighs in at 9 5kg and we ve put him in with the rest of Group 2 where he is happily chasing aound with all the other youngsters Yesterday was a busy day up at EP Cambridge in Baydon Jane Vaughn gave an interesting talk on alpaca nutrition which will have most of us chucking away our supplements She finished off with a small discussion on Embryo transfer Certainly a way to accelerate your herd improvement programme just a shame its beyond the means of us smaller breeders Perhaps we should get together on it Interesting to hear her say that artificial insemination in alpacas is decades off Mainly because of the small amount they produce and the difficulty in freezing it Also she doesn t feel frozen embryo transfer will be succesfull for some time yet either This was followed by a talk by Ian Watts on follicular density which was basically the American version of SRS He makes it sound pretty convincing so perhaps its something we ll have to look at Perhaps we need a bit more science in our breeding programme Champagne canapes and lunch followed then a long sleep on the way home while Felicia drove Well it was her turn Posted in Cria News Post navigation Open Day at Popham North Devon Show One thought on Mark Steele says 4th August 2008 at 12 56 pm Gary I meant to introduce myself at the soiree but didn t get round to it I have been reading your blog for a while and find it very interesting Always good pictures Hopefully I ll get a chance to say hello at the next alpaca event Cheers Mark Reply Leave a Reply
