How to Use
- If mixed milk has cooled lambs won’t be eager to consume cold milk. Not a problem unless only 1–2 lambs/kids.
- 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.
- Machine must be kept from freezing. Some build an insulated box and/or install a heat lamp.
