Buck & Doe Block/Buck & Doe Pellet
Oñate Feed Co., LLC produces deer feed formulated to be fed free-choice to deer as a supplement to native forage and browse. We offer a 25 lb. Buck and Doe Block or Buck and Doe Pellet, which is sold in a 50 lb. bag.
Alpaca and Llama Feed Products
To help alpaca and llama owners meet the nutritional needs of their animals, we offer two feed varieties:
- Evans Western Alpaca Mom & Cria Diet (texturized 50 lb. bag)
- Dr. Evans Western Alpaca Maintenance Diet (pelleted 50 lb. bag)
Both formulas meet or exceed nutritional guidelines established by the National Research Council (NRC).
Alpaca and Llama Feeding Guidelines
Our alpaca feeds may be used for both alpaca and llamas. Follow the following feeding guidelines for each specie:
- Cria Starter: Feed 0.33 to 0.50 pounds per 50 pounds of body weight (from 2 to 12 months of age)
- Gestating Alpacas: Feed 1.0 pound per day (last 12 weeks of gestation)
- Lactating Alpacas: Feed 1.25 pounds to 1.50 pounds a day
- Gestating Llamas: Feed 1.25 to 1.5 pounds per day (last 8 to 12 weeks)
- Lactating Llamas: Feed 1.5 to 2.0 pounds her day
The above feeding rates for alpacas are based on average alpaca size (150 pound) or llama size (300 pounds), forage quality, body condition score and level of milk production.
We recommend the Alpaca Mom & Cria Diet feed for producing and older llamas to prevent musculoskeletal breakdown and arthritis. We also suggest the feeding rates for gestation and lactation for non-producing alpacas and llamas during periods of extreme cold.
