Features: Benefits:
Insta*Flake® Process   This process gives a consistent improvement in solubility and sediment scores which allows the milk replacer to mix fast and easy with fewer floaters and edge clingers.
Specially-formulated combination of high-quality milk protein and homogenized fats Provides the protein and energy needed to get lambs off to a fast, healthy start.
Added Preservatives Allows milk replacer to stay fresh longer.

Mixing Directions:

  1.  Lambs should receive colostrum milk soon after birth.  Remove lambs from ewes one day after birth, if possible, and start them on Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer.
  2.  Use the plastic cup provided in the bag to measure Lamb Milk Replacer powder. Mix one level measure (about ¼ pound) of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer in one pint of warm (110-120°F) water, or for large batches, mix two pounds of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer with one gallon of warm (110-120°F) water.


Hand Feeding Guidelines:

When hand feeding by bottle, Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer should be fed at body temperature. The following feeding schedule is recommended:


  1.  After colostrum feeding to three days:  Feed 1/3 of reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer four to five times a day at four-hour intervals.
  2.  From four days to two weeks: Gradually decrease the number of feedings and increase the amount of Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer per feeding. At two weeks of age, feed lambs one cup of reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer three times a day.
  3.  From two weeks to weaning:  Feed reconstituted Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer twice daily and in gradually increased quantities.


Free Choice Feeding

If using devices to give lambs free access to Ultra Fresh® Lamb Milk Replacer, it should be fed cold at about 40°F.  Cold milk is used to limit intake and prevent overeating. When starting lambs on nipples, they require assistance; however, they will adapt readily and nurse independently within one to two days.

  1.  Keep all equipment used for mixing and feeding thoroughly cleaned.
  2.  Provide a high-quality creep feed at a few days of age and continue on a free-choice basis.  
  3.  Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
  4.  Lambs should be weaned from milk at four to six weeks of age or when they reach 25 pounds. Abrupt weaning can be used; however, reduced milk replacer feeding a few days prior to weaning to encourage creep intake may be desirable.
  5.  If scours occur:

First:  Check environment for drafts and proper temperature.

Second:  Evaluate sanitation.

Third:  If scours persist, treat with suitable antibiotic as recommended by your veterinarian.
