"Guard Llamas. Llamas are extremely effective in reducing loses [sic] of sheep and goats against coyotes and other wild predators. In a study conducted by Iowa State University the average range used one gelded llama per pasture with 250 to 300 sheep and reduced animal losses from 25% to 1%. More than half of guard llama owners report 100 percent reduction in predator losses. The llamsas natural territorial instincts and protectiveness will cause him to chase out any predators entering the pasture and or issue an alarm call. Llamas have provved to be a simple, non-lethal method of reducing predation in livestock while being easily cared for and maintained with the herd."
