Mixing Directions:

1.  Lambs should receive colostrum milk soon after birth.  Remove lambs from ewes 1 day after birth, if possible, and start lambs on Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer.

2.  Use the plastic cup provided in the bag to measure Lamb Milk Replacer powder.  Mix 1 level measure (about ¼ pound) of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer in 1 pint of water, or for large batches mix 2 pounds of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer with 1 gallon of water.

3.  Mix with warm (110-120°F) water; stir while adding Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer.

Hand Feeding Guidelines:

When hand feeding by bottle, Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer should be fed at body temperature.  The following feeding schedule is recommended.

1.  After colostrum Feeding to 3 days:  Feed 1/3 of reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer 4 to 5 times a day at 4 hour intervals.

2.  From 4 Days to 2 Weeks:  Gradually decrease the number of feedings and increase amount of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer per feeding.  At two weeks of age, 1 cup of reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer 3 times per day is sufficient.

3.  From 2 Weeks to Weaning:  Feed reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer twice daily and in gradually increased quantities.

Free Choice Feeding:

If using devices to give lambs free access to Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer, it should be fed cold at about 40°F.  Cold milk is used to limit intake and prevent overeating.  When starting lambs on nipples, they require assistance; however, they will adapt readily and nurse independently within 1 to 2 days.

General Recommendations:

1.  Keep all equipment used for mixing and feeding thoroughly cleaned.

2.  Provide a high quality creep feed at a few days of age and continue on a free-choice basis.  

3.  Provide fresh, clean water at all times.

4.  Lambs should be weaned from milk at 4 to 6 weeks of age or about 25 pounds of weight.  Abrupt weaning can be used; however, reduced milk replacer feeding a few days prior to weaning to encourage creep intake may be desirable.

5.  If scours occur: 

First:  Check environment for drafts and proper temperature.

Second:  Evaluate sanitation.

Third:  If scours persist, treat with suitable antibiotic as recommended by your veterinarian.
