LAC-TEK Machine for Lambs & Kids
The LAC-TEK is an automatic dispenser designed to provide a constant, uniform and easily accessible supply of milk replacer or formula for lambs and goat kids.
The machine automatically mixes small quantities of powdered milk replacer/formula with warm water at a desired concentration. The animals take the mixed liquid by means of a rubber nipple.
- Thermostat warms water to a pre-set temperature up to 110°.
- Fully adjustable milk/water ratio to mix formula as animals age.
- Up to 10 lambs/kids per nipple. Provides milk for 60 orphans.
- Daily cleaning takes about 10 minutes.
- Six month warranty.
- Save labor.
- More kids/lambs grow better.
- Only 10 minute daily cleaning.
- Nipples lasted for 100 lambs.
- At weaning, kids/lambs are of equal quality to those raised on a mother.
- Produces very uniform lambs/kids at weaning.
- Mixes only a small amount of milk at one time—less spoilage.
How to Use
- Nipples must be set 1" above the level of the milk in the mixing bowl.
- If mixed milk has cooled lambs won't be eager to consume cold milk. Not a problem unless only 1-2 kids/lambs.
- Spoilage can occur in warm weather.
- Warm temperatures may cause milk to froth which covers the sensor. This delays the mixing of a fresh batch.
- Must be kept from freezing. Some build an insulated box and install a heat lamp.
- Requires a 20 amp breaker.
