Cambridge is Australia’s largest Alpaca herd with circa 3000 alpacas currently resident on the Oakbank property. The property is home to the most prestigious of EP Cambridge breeding dynasties. Our purpose built alpaca facility was completed in 2003 and comprises a trophy room, reception/welcome area as well as offices and a boardroom for coffee and negotiations. This is a wonderful showpiece which our alpacas, staff and clients alike appreciate.
Quarantine Life at EPC
Each alpaca paddock has trees for shade, sheds for shelter and automatic water troughs. We substitute feed the animals with lucerne, oaten, clover and/or meadow hay through the year – all grown on company farms to ensure premium quality and no unwanted weeds. Special care is given to weaners and older alpacas with a pellet and chaff mixture.
24 hour care is maintained at all times to ensure the continual health and safety of all the animals on the property. Our Veterinarian resides on the same road as our stud so is only minutes away. There are purpose built yards for conducting matings as well as a hospital area for neonatal care. This also comprises a separate area for the treatment of sick animals.
In addition to this we have an on farm pre-export quarantine facility which is AQIS approved and has seen many alpacas jet on to international destinations such as New Zealand, the UK, Europe and China to name a few.
EP Cambridge has outstanding facilities both in Australia and the UK. The infrastructure of each of the properties has been specifically considered with Alpacas in mind. Each farm is set in countryside of breath taking beauty and exceptional grazing potential.
