Would you like to buy an alpaca? They’re going CHEAP!

If you’ve ever wanted to own an alpaca, the market trend right now is that they are not nearly as expensive as they used to be.

Alpacas are calm, easy-going animals with incredible fur to be used in all sort of clothing products, if knitting is your thing.  We know a number of people who own alpacas (or llamas, or chickens, or pigs… a surprising number of friends own pigs), and they think owning an alpaca is the greatest thing.

Scientists are always looking for the next, best thing.

And in their quest to determine how much air and environmental pollution farm animals contribute to the Earth each year, it can become necessary to teach those same farm animals how to do their business on demand.

Think of this along the lines of you you’d housebreak a dog, or teach a cat to use the toilet instead of a litter box — all animals can be taught to associate bathroom time with a specific action, method or command — the object with farm animals is that you’re dealing with the same on a much, much bigger scale.
