When Should I Feed Camelibra to My Alpaca, Llama or Camel?

Camelibra should be fed to all alpacas, llamas and camels on a daily basis to complement a natural high fibre diet.

For continued health, it is important for camelids to eat plenty of fibrous material and, as such, the consumption of concentrated hard feeds should always be kept to a minimum. Too much hard feed in the daily diet can cause compaction - a situation where heavier material sinks in the foregut and adversely affects the food's motility and normal gas eructation/regurgitation. For this reason, the daily feeding rate for Camelibra is designed to be very low at just 1g per kg live weight, or approximately 5% of their normal daily intake.

Explained - Nutraceuticals & the Oatinol® Delivery System

Explained - The 9 Active Nutraceuticals in Camelibra

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Protected Trace Elements

Protected trace elements increase the bio-availabiliy of essential micro minerals, provided in a digestible form to supply the needs of productive animals. Trials with high levels of available zinc have shown very positive results with fibre quality. Selenium yeast has also been proven to be more available and twenty times less toxic than inorganic selenium, which is very beneficial to health.

Nanotechnology Components and Simple Sugars 'Oligosaccharides'

Oligosaccharides are used to support the immune system by maintaining naturally high levels of macrophage activity to block harmful organisms being absorbed into the bloodstream. In conjunction with a natural, high quality forage diet the exposure to unnatural moulds and fungi will be reduced and if a problem, the active self-defence mechanism will deal with them.

Natural Buffering and Yeast Cultures

Natural buffering material and yeast cultures help to stabilise the pH in the foregut and encourage the development of beneficial fibre digesting bacteria. This is important when feeding cereal based feeds as starch is converted into lactic acid, which can increase acidity and create an unfavourable environment for the fibre digesting bacteria.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids provide a daily source of essential fat components. Omega 3 is widely recognised to be an anti-inflammatory and balances the pro-inflammatory Omega 6 in the correct ratio. Omega 3's are also found in large concentrations in spermatozoa and are essential for maintaining cell wall integrity and preventing moisture/oil loss from the skin. Healthy skin means high quality fibre production.

Prebiotics

Prebiotics provide specific nourishment for friendly, fibre digesting bacteria to maintain good digestion and release of nutrients for growth, breeding and performance.

Vitamin D3, Phosphorus, Calcium & Yeast Cultures

Contains high levels of vitamin D3, available phosphorus and calcium in a very palatable form. All three are crucial for healthy skeletal development and additional yeast cultures are added to significantly improve the digestibility of phosphorus from normal feed.

Explained - The 4 Active Nutraceuticals in the Oatinol Delivery System

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies the following four active nutraceuticals to:

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.
  • Maintain the lining of the gut.
  • Support the immune system.
  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.

Daily Feeding Recommendation

  • Simply mix Camelibra with fibre pellets and/or chaff.​

All Camelids - Summer Feeding

  • General Maintenance Level: 1gm per kg Liveweight / Day
  • Example: A 60kg alpaca would require 60gm of Camelibra / Day

All Camelids - Winter Feeding

  • General Maintenance Level: 1.25gm per kg Liveweight / Day
  • Example: A 60kg alpaca would require 75gm of Camelibra / Day
