Source on the Scene: Tour One of the Nation’s Largest Alpaca Ranches

When Central Oregon Daily’s Chris Biggs was told Alpaca Country Estates Ranch and Bed & Breakfast offer tours, she replied, “Al-pac-a my lunch and head on out,” because like a lot of people she was curious about alpacas and assumed they were much like llamas–boy was she wrong. Although they both come from the camelid family, llamas are nearly twice the size of the average 100 – 200 pound alpaca. Llamas can get up to 450 pounds; they are also territorial and have been used as guard animals, whereas, alpacas are docile in nature and show affection to humans. Check out what else makes these alpacas, that graze the 134 acres, at the Terrebonne ranch.
