MILK REPLACERS

Lamb Milk Replacer

Kent Lamb Milk Replacer is a high-quality, fully-formulated complete first feed for lambs and goat kids. This product has been carefully formulated to provide all of the essential nutrients in the proper proportions to support the survival and growth rates of lambs or goat kids from the second day of life through weaning.

  • High fat – contains 30% fat which is similar to ewe’s milk and is a must in the diet of baby lambs.
  • BoVantage® Technology – for healthy performance and immune system support.
  • Blend of bacteria – a unique blend of five species of genetically-aligned bacteria which help maintain an ideal intestinal environment and promote better feed utilization.
  • Coconut oil – one of the easiest fats to digest.
  • Low lactose levels – reduces the incidence of bloating.
Mixing and Feeding Directions
Lambs: The enclosed cup* holds about 8 ounces of milk replacer powder. Mix 4 ounces (1/2 enclosed cup) of Lamb Formula into 1 pint of warm (110° to 120°F) water. For larger flocks, mix 2 pounds (4 enclosed cups) milk replacer powder into 1 gallon of water. The following amounts of reconstituted milk replacer should be fed daily.
Age of Lamb (days) Number of Feedings/Day Reconstituted Product/Feeding Total Product Fed/Day
1 3-4 colostrum colostrum
2-10 4 8 oz 32 oz
11-18 3 12 oz 36 oz
19-42 2 16 oz 32 oz

Goat Kid: Mix at a rate of 1½ pounds of milk replacer powder per gallon of water [3 oz (by weight) of milk replacer powder per 1 pint of water]. Use enclosed cup.* Mix milk replacer powder in ½ quantity of water at 120° F and then dilute to volume and feed at 98° F. For the first few days, feed a limited quantity (maximum of 1 pint) per feeding up to 3 to 4 times per day.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Feed colostrum for the first 24 hours of life, starting within 2 hours of birth.
  2. Provide fresh, clean water free choice at all times.
  3. The temperature of reconstituted milk replacer fed should be 90°- 100°F.
  4. Your lamb and/or kid is an individual; therefore, the quantity and the concentration of solids fed may be varied to maintain proper body condition and stool consistency. Consult with your veterinarian if you have questions.

Feeding Ewes
A ewe should gain 25-30 pounds during the gestation period with the majority of this coming the last six weeks of gestation. To avoid lambing paralysis, it is important that ewes be fed the ewe ration beginning 4-6 weeks before lambing. Ewes carrying twins need 1-11⁄2 pounds per day while ewes carrying singles need 3⁄4 to 1 pound per day. All ewes need 4-6 pounds of roughage during this period. The ewe ration can be fed from lambing to weaning, but the amount fed should be increased slightly for the first four weeks of lactation.

Ewe Ration (Flushing, Late Gestation, and Lambing)
Kent 34 Lamb Supp 150 B 300 lb
Wheat Bran or Oats 750 lb
Shelled Corn 900 lb
Kent-O-Lass 50 lb
Total 2000 lb
Kent Sheep Mineral should be offered free-choice to ewes year-round in a mineral feeder located in a dry area.

Caution: The safety of lasalocid in unapproved species has not been established. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in excessive concentrations of lasalocid could be fatal to sheep. Do not allow horses or other equines access to supplements containing lasalocid as ingestion may be fatal.
