Biosecurity Cost/Benefit

An outbreak of disease could harm your alpacas and affect other animals quickly spreading through your area.  The economic consequences of a disease outbreak in your area could be devastating.  Biosecurity measures need to be carefully considered and discussed with your veterinarian.

Alpaca owners should consider the investment they have in their operations, their goals, and diseases prevalent within the alpaca industry and their area of the country.

The risk of introducing disease, the cost of disease once it's introduced, the cost of biosecurity measures, and the amount of risk an alpaca owner is willing to live with will determine the biosecurity measures each owner takes.
