The key areas that were investigated in order to determine the base-line data were:-
• Fleece production, fibre quality and fibre assessment
• Phenotypic and genetic parameters for production traits in Australian alpacas
• Blood minerals, trace elements and vitamin levels of alpacas
• Internal parasites and their control

This report was developed from the research carried out on five alpaca farms across Southern Australia over a period of four years using both Huacaya and Suri breeds.
