At the moment, Elyse is the only person that has studied at the Deakin University, Geelong the wool classing on sheep wool, and the univeristery were introducing alpaca. This program seems as though it will wind down, due to govt cut backs. SHe also has a gained her certifcates in agriculture, specialising in alpaca. What is her job description?Managing alpaca farm, quarantine duties, which incorporates assisting vet, health checking alpacas on a daily basis, and cleaning and disinfectiong.'She also advises clients on animal managment, she drives around for the mobile matings, and worms and innoculate clients alpacas, manages our own herd, matings, spit offs, clean farm, teaches vet students, supervisers vet students, assist me if needed in fibre sampled, data collection, filing, assists her dad, mowing, laying turf, spraying, rode on mowing, paving, window cleaning, building pagolas, trimming hedges, assists her brother, laying underlay, carpet and vinyl, driving, deliveries to pharmacies if needed, driving her brother to jobs.

But above all she is a grosse kid, she is always there to help me, often cooks tea, if i am so loaded up with work, is always there to assist her father, loves her dog, "fatty". We also have three other dogs, who will follow her all over the farm, and stress out when they cannot see her.
