Applications

Agri-Best Lamb Milk Replacer is a fully formulated complete first feed for lambs.  It provides the entire nutritional requirements of the baby lamb from its second day of life through to weaning. 

Feeding Instructions:

  1. Ensure that the baby lamb receives colostrum during its first 12 hours of life.
  2. For best results, mix Agri-Best Lamb Milk Replacer with warm water (110° F), then cool to room temperature.  Offer ad libitum to lambs through a suitable nipple feeder.  Milk should be available at all times.
  3. For hand feeding with a nipple bottle or restricted feeding offer warm milk at 100° F.  It is recommended to offer 3 to 6 feedings per day of warm milk during the first two weeks of life and thereafter 2 feedings per day.  Never offer more than 1/2 pint per feeding.
  4. Provide good quality lamb creep at 3 to 6 days of age and restrict hay intake to the amount a lamb will eat in an hour.
  5. Wean lambs at a minimum of 30 days and weighing at least 25 pounds.

Mixing Instructions:

Mix at a rate of 2 lbs. per gallon of warm water (110° F) or one (1) 4 ounce cup of Agri-Best Lamb Milk Replacer with two (2) cups of warm water.  Milk will stay fresh up to 3 days due to acidification. 

*One level measuring cup equals 4 ounces of dry Agri-Best Lamb Milk Replacer.
