Shepherd’s Choice® Management TipProducers should NOT tube lambs that cannot hold their heads upright. In most cases these are hypothermic lambs. They need glucose (IP) and warming first. Once the animal has been revived and can hold its head up, then you can use the various stomach tube devices to deliver nourishment.

Love it! Handy to use and the amount you can get in them compared to a 60 ml syringe is better. Handles make it easy to hold while inserting tube and gravity feed is better for them.

Love this Tuber! It’s so much easier and safer in my opinion. I just wish you could purchase extra hoses and not have to buy the entire product again.

Very cheaply made.

Colostrum was too thick to flow through the tubing. It is a good concept. Was pretty bummed it didn’t work for our flock.
