Directions For Use
Feed at a concentration of 180 grams per litre. Gradually increase the amount being offered to lambs. Consult your Materfeeds Account Manager for more details on how to increase the quantity of milk offered. The suggested feeding program should be considered as a minimum. Approximately 8 kg of milk replacer will be consumed per lamb by the time they wean.
|Lamb Age||Feedings per day||Mixed Milk Replacer Solution per Feeding (mls)|
- Start feeding milk replacer once newborn has received colostrum, approximately four feedings of 200 ml each.
- Quantities offered should be adjusted to weight, increasing gradually from birth to weaning.
- Any change in the feeding schedule should be done with judgment, according to growth, size and stool consistency.
- Frequent feeding of small amounts decreases chances of digestive upsets.
- Free-choice milk is served at room temperature; do not leave lamb bar empty for more than two hours.
- Teats should be at 40 to 45 cm (16 to 18”) above the stall floor.
- Clean ALL feeding utensils and equipment after each feeding: rinse in lukewarm water, wash with a detergent in hot water, rinse with clean water (ideally a 5 to 10% bleach solution once a day) and dry thoroughly with a ‘clean’ towel.
- Introduce a quality lamb creep ration (17 to 20% CP) from four days of age: offer small quantities twice daily.
- Offer good quality roughage at two weeks of age. Do not feed silage before six weeks of age.
- Fresh, clean water should be always available, particularly when consuming a significant amount of solids.
- When the lamb is consuming a minimum of 120 to 150 g of creep ration per day for more the two consecutive days, the weaning process can be initiated. Suggested weaning weight is about 12 kg.
