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.
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.
