HOW WE GOT IN THE 
LLAMA & GUANACO BUSINESS
WHY WE STAYED



North Texas Llamas are a collection of very colorful paint llamas (and guanacos) bred to clear brush while looking pretty out in the pasture.  Why spray brush and weeds with herbicides when you could have a pair of llamas browsing your pasture turning broad leaf plants into llama beans?

The Next Generation of North Texas Llamas

This very special herd of over 160 llamas and guanacos reside on Jimmy Dickey's rotational grazing operation in Campbell, TX between Greenville & Sulphur Springs just off I-30 only 60 miles east of Dallas.  The herd has been utilized as companion animals alongside cattle, sheep, goats, horses, alpacas and humans.

Reasonably priced paint llamas currently available include breeding age studs and brood females.  Also available are gelded llamas for guard animals.  Our llamas sell from $150 to $350 each.  We don't consider llamas to be exotics and we don't price them like exotics! 

North Texas Llamas are "pasture fit" animals specifically bred to produce lots of color and be structurally sound.  We want llamas to be able to roam your pasture for 15 to 20 years without becoming crippled.  Our llamas are wormed twice/year.

You could burn a lot of gasoline trying to find llamas with this much color

We attempted to use both sheep & goats to clear brush and weeds from our grass farm, but with little success due to extraordinary fence requirements and coyotes.  

We then discovered that llamas were not the expensive creatures they had been in the past and that they love brush and weeds.  We immediately began experimenting with these animals we knew nothing about. 



Llamas on pasture are "easy keepers" requiring very little protein supplement and that being only for brood females in the winter.

Selecting a llama is kind of like buying luggage!  With a life span of 15-20 years, you're going to be looking at it for quite some time so you might as well get a colorful one.  

Llamas aren't some exotic species destine to drop in price leaving you with a bunch of expensive mouths to feed.  With today's stable market, these animals can be used in everyday pasture situations just as you would cattle, sheep & goats.  Every cow herd should have a pair of low-cost llamas browsing the tree line watching for coyotes & feral dogs. 

INSTINCTIVE PROTECTORS
   
Llamas instinctively gather around newborns giving them time to adjust to the new world.  I've seen this happen with each birth I've witnessed.  

People often ask about their temperament? They possess the curious independence of cats and their gregarious nature make them easy to handle.  An experienced handler can easily move large or small groups of llamas from pasture to pasture on foot.  They have no smell and produce low to no odor manure placed in communal piles around the pasture.    

I'm completely comfortable sending my daughter into the middle of a herd of llamas with a bucket of feed.  That is something I don't let her do with our horses and cattle!  


Llamas ignoring my then 11 year old daughter

The myth about "spitting llamas" is exaggerated.  If a llama is spitting at you, you're probably handling them wrong or they're scared. 

****************************NEWS FLASH****************************
Lloch Ness Llama was recently spotted on the North Texas Llama Farm in Campbell, TX.  It appeared to be non-threatening and was easily caught with a little bit of grain.
