Making the Right Decision for Your Farm
Llamas and donkeys make excellent guard animals, but deciding which one is right for your farm is a tough decision.
Guard llamas will protect a livestock herd from several different predators. Their defensive demeanor will be enough to ward off an attacker.
If you decide to get a guard llama, you will only need one. A single llama will bond with the livestock and feel protective of them.
How Many Guard Llamas Do You Need?
A guard donkey will attack and sometimes even kill predators such as wolves, wild and domestic dogs, coyotes, bobcats and foxes.
Guard donkeys generally require no training. A donkey’s instinct is to protect itself from predators at all costs.
