Orphans’ First Feed
New! Shepherd’s Choice® Lamb and Kid Starters
Shepherd’s Choice® Lamb & Kid Starter Feed

Feeding the proper ration gives lambs and goat kids the nutrition they need, with the growth shepherds want.

Formulated by Premier’s small ruminant nutritionist, Dr. Dan Morrical, Ph.D., Shepherd’s Choice® Lamb & Kid Starter Feed prepares small ruminants, particularly orphan-reared, for dry feed and primes them for growth.

  • 20% protein, 4% fat provides optimal amino acid nutrition
  • Mini-pellet for quick acceptance
  • Fortified with vitamins and minerals for maximum health
  • Formulated with probiotics to aid with gut health
  • Medicated with Decoquinate (Deccox) to control coccidia
  • No cheap fillers!

After 2 months of age for lambs or 3 months of age for goat kids, switch to normal grower/finisher ration. Keep feed fresh by only offering very small amounts early on. Always provide a constant supply of clean, fresh water.

Shepherd’s Choice® Lamb Starter
Absolutely love this product! Our lambs seem to find it very palatable. The pellet quality is much better compared to feeds we’ve used in the past, and there are virtually no fines at the bottom of the bag. Highly recommend!

All of Premier’s premixes include the essential trace minerals needed for well-being of sheep and goats. But GOLD Formula Premixes increase the levels of zinc and iodine to promote stronger, healthier hooves.
