Why is Alpamin a must?
Alpamin is not intended to provide energy or proteins. In other words, it is not a concentrate, but a well-balanced vitamin and mineral supplement that keeps animals in optimum health. If this supplement is not used, the deficiencies can lead to health problems in both the short and long term, such as weak bones, fertility problems, weak crias, cria death, skin problems and overall lower immune function. Make no mistake, this supplement is necessary for every llama and alpaca, not only crias or pregnant and lactating dams! For adult alpacas and llamas, a daily dose of Alpamin is sufficient to never have to administer vitamin and mineral injections.
Alpamin contains a coated, heat-resistant form of vitamin D. This variant is highly stable and remains biologically available for absorption through the intestinal wall.
We use three different types of zinc, each of which is absorbed by the intestines in a different way.
Selenium promotes optimal fertility and the vitality of newborn crias. Alpamin contains both inorganic and organic selenium.
Biotin not only keeps skin, fibre and nails healthy, but also stimulates milk production.
These amino acids provide sulphur, which is then absorbed by the wool fibres. Sulphur is beneficial because it is an essential component of wool fibres. An optimal sulphuric level helps safeguard good fibre structure.
An ideal calcium to phosphorous ratio of 2:1 regulates healthy and strong bone development and good energy efficiency.
To support gut flora, we use high-fibre raw materials instead of starchy grain products.
Alpamin is packed with vitamins and minerals and can also be easily eaten by crias.

To ensure an optimal supply of all minerals and vitamins, Alpamin should be used throughout the year.
A little more may be given in winter than in summer. Always stay within the range of the recommended daily amount.
Always provide unrestricted access to grass and/or hay.
1 to 1.5 g per kg body weight
Standard dose alpaca SUMMER:
Adult 75 grams
Cria 6-12 months 50 grams
Standard dose alpaca WINTER:
Adult 100 grams
Cria 6-12 months 50 grams
For llamas, give double dose.
the type of feed that an alpaca or llama requires depends strongly on the physiological phase, age and living conditions of the animal? It is primarily the protein and energy needs that fluctuate. A separate dose of Alpamin makes sure the animals are in good basic health!
