Also can be used to replace or supplement maternal colostrum when:
- The quality or quantity of available colostrum is not adequate.
- Kid goats and lambs are unable to suckle, such as in multiple births, first pregnancy dams, and those born to sick or weak dams.
- Ewes or does are infected with disease agents that can transfer through infected colostrum.
How to Use
Newborn lambs and goat kids should receive their first feeding of colostrum as soon after birth as possible by nipple bottle or esophageal tube. Feed colostrum 3 times in the first 18 hours of life.
Each feeding is based on body weight. Feed the appropriate amount described in the table above (See dose chart above pdf).
