Meet Some of Our Farmyard Animals
Dusty and Dallas
Behavioral enrichment enhances the quality of animal care by providing environmental stimuli that encourage animals to express natural behaviors. For our farmyard animals this might mean hiding food in piles of mulch for our pigs to root through or introducing new smells to the alpaca yard. Keep an eye out during your visit and see if you spot anything unexpected in The Farmyard—it may just be part of our daily animal enrichment!
How Do You Measure Up?
How many people does it take to equal the weight of an alpaca? How about our donkey? Interact with and use the same scale our animal care specialists use to weigh our farmyard animals and see how many friends it takes to equal your favorite animal.
