I have no idea what to do with the alpacas placenta i thought they would eat it and none of them did. Looked it up .. like humans camels, llamas and alpacas supposedly dont eat it. i thought maybe they might do it anyways because info can be wrong but they didnt. so im left with 4 placenta? any idea is there a way i can make use of this gross question but id hate to waste

Compost it? Grind it up and feed it to chickens directly? Breeding Fly Maggots for Poultry Feed. Feed it to your dogs?

My dog at the goat placenta, the pigs all heartily enjoyed the placentas from the sow who gave birth (she ate one but then got full, I guess).
