Plasma and Colostrum

Colostrum is the mothers first milk. It is vital a new born cria receives enough colostrum within the first few hours of life. Colostrum contains antibodies which give the cria immunity passed on from the mother until it is old enough to develop its immune system and its own immunity to diseases and infections.

Alpaca Plasma


Please note: we do not currently have plasma in stock.

Alpaca Power keep a supply of frozen alpaca plasma, sourced from our own alpacas. If you are worried about a cria not getting an adequate feed of colostrum from its mother (failure of passive transfer) then plasma is an excellent source of antibodies.
