Any alpaca "farmers" out there?

Kind of out of left field I am noticing that alpacas are no longer so outrageously priced and I have the land (pasture) to consider it. Maybe now that the craze to sell pregnant mares for over $20,000 is gone the truth is that is not worth it as a real fiber/fleece harvesting and or breeding operation? For the most part the local people I am able to talk to are more than willing to sell you the animals at very reasonable prices (as low as a few hundred dollars) but are short on details as to the real economics of the operation.

I am wondering if someone here in the asylum has tried making it work and can share their experience here or thru PM's. Thanks.

Mods. if these is in the wrong section please move as required!
