Listen to INTERVIEW with Dr. M. Jones from Kansas State University Veterinary Hospital (well known camelid center). There are a lot of misconceptions about nutrition, fatty liver disease and fleece quality in camelids.  After much peer reviewed scientific paper research and discussion with experts such as Dr. Jones, we will try and break down this information in a concise way.  If you know anyone with type 2 diabetes, this information is relevant because alpacas and llamas have naturally high blood glucose levels and insulin resistance similar to humans with Type 2 diabetes.

This will expand your knowledge and unlearn what you thought you knew!
