    I'm thinking about starting an alpaca herd. This is my pasture now:

    I know, pretty sad, right? Can anyone tell me what type of grass this is and if alpacas can eat it? (After I clean up the pasture, of course.)

    Contact your local extension office - they can be an invaluable resource for not only ID'ing the current grass(es) but also helping with pasture management plans, etc based on your locality and their knowledge of the area.
