Shearing at Kobler

Mobile Alpaca Shearing Service

We are proud to offer a complete mobile alpaca shearing service throughout South Australia. Simply contact us and we can arrange a date to head out to your property and shear your alpacas / llamas. All we ask is they are penned in a small area that we can get a vehicle to. The shearing includes toenail trimming and optional vaccinations. 

Alpaca Shearing Days

We understand that sometimes it can be hard to find an available shearer particularly for weekends at the height of shearing time as they book up quickly. For this reason in conjunction with Prados Alpacas we hold a number of shearing days on farm where you bring along your alpacas and they are shorn while you wait. Booking for these days is still important to ensure we do not get bottle necks so we will provide a time slot. We do provide discounts for larger numbers however it may be easier for us to come to you.

Shearing for health

While there are some studies being conducted into not shearing older huacaya with very short fleece every year of which we eagerly await the outcome it is our firm belief that huacaya should be shorn every year. There are a number of reasons for this. It guarantees that at least once a year your alpaca gets a very good look over for problems which may not otherwise be spotted. Shearing provides a good time to ensure vaccinations are up to date. It is very convenient time to check toenails and teeth.
