When we had llamas, there was a lot of interest in these wonderful animals — and some of that interest had to do with how much money you might be able to make with them. After some years, the big money mostly moved on to alpacas. As a result, many people lost interest in llamas. This is reflected in the selection of websites, as many have not been kept up much.

By far the best website I have found for current information on llamas and alpacas is called llamas-alpacas.com, publisher of The International Camelid Quarterly, a full color, high-quality magazine on llamas, alpacas, and other camelids.  I know some of the writers from way back, and they are good. You can subscribe online only or for the physical magazine too.

One of the few websites that is current is that of LANA, the Llama Association of North America. They have an active youth program and other events.

Another organization currently active  is RMLA.com — the Rocky Mountain Llama and Alpaca Association, mainly in Colorado.  They publish the excellent Caring for Llamas and Alpacas, by Clare Hoffman, DVM, and Ingrid Asmus — that link takes you to their page on it.

Llama.org is done by a group that may no longer exist, I’m not sure: the Llama Lifestyle Marketing Association. The site has a section about what you can do with llamas. It says the last update was 2007, and I see quite a bit that was already out of date then. The parts about making money with llamas are out of date for sure.

Llamaweb.com  doesn’t seem to have been kept up since 2005, or at least they haven’t updated their copyright since then, but here is a good section of facts about llamas. There are quite a few pages, including one on coat colors.

Here’s a page of information about llamas at North Dakota State University. It seems to have been written in 1993, but the essential facts are current. The prices of llamas are probably not. This has a lot of the kind of thing that is useful in school reports.

To find llama ranches in your area, do a google or other search engine search on llama ranch (singular) and the name of your state or region.

    I had adopted three females, who’s elderly owner had passed on, and needed to be given a home. These three ladies had not been tended too, nor handled for almost three years. I got them lovely do’s, and their nails done, along with shots. I have separated the Lean-to stall’s one side for the two sheep, and the other for the ladies, they all eat out of the same crib.
    Today, my neighbor knock’s at my door- saying come out to see what I brought you, there in the drive way is another young Dame, she had been very abused/neglected. I accepted her, but the younger of my Dames did not. The eldest/Guard of the previous three seemed to take her under her tutelage-showing her about the place, but the Daughter on the Eldest, went to the front pasture in protest.
    I tried to coax this Dame to join the others, but no go. finally the original herd all joined up in the front pasture leaving the newbie by her self, I tried to have the newbie follow me to the front pasture, but she sadly stayed staring through the fence at the others. What can I do to help bring forward a family/herd cohesion?

    Sorry, Robin, but I don’t have any specific ideas. Just be attentive to what they are communicating with body language. Hopefully things have already worked out some by now… this got lost in my emails…. Try asking some llama people in your area.

    Kudos to you for taking on these ladies.
