Saliga had a dream, and he liked llamas.
Saliga spent most of his life in Rahway, New Jersey. Bob liked that
area and even had a few friends, but something called to his inner-being.
That calling was the desire to spend time with llamas.
decided to move to Idaho, since he heard that land was cheap and
some of it had gold in it. Bob Saliga packed up his few belongings
and llama books into a rental truck and headed
found that he was a natural at llama ranching. He was able to increase
the size of his herd rapidly with special, secret breeding processes.
But llama breeding success wasn't enough for Bob. He wanted to share
the beauty and fun of llamas with all people, and so he opened the
ranch up to the public in 1997.

to Raising Llamas:
Care, Showing, Breeding, Packing, Profiting
book is okay for the novice or beginner. The 'profiting' section
doesn't cover some of the most important topics like llama
hides, llama meat, and llama byproducts. Rest assured, these
subjects will be covered in detail in my upcoming book, Jersey
Bob's Guide to Llama Factories.
Livestock at Home
me tell you folks, butchering a llama isn't as easy as it
sounds! This book will help you, like it helped me, get started
in the exciting world of llama meat. The book doesn't have
a chapter on llamas specifically, so I would recommend using
a combination of the cow and sheep butchering techniques when
you start out.
