Full Cream Powered Milk for Poddie Lambs

by Tony Orford
(NSW Australia)

I hope this helps. We have used full cream powered milk ( the very best you can buy ) for all our poddie lambs. All have lived and none have had scours.

We feed them every 1.5hr for the first 4 days giving them 200mil and for the first 2 nights I sleep in the same pen with them.

It is undercover and warm I talk to them and they tend to curl up next to me, they have a good night of food and company and all I loose is sleep and get weed on sometimes, company/touching and feeds every 1.5hrs is I think the most important things you can do for a new lamb.

Just remember the lamb is just like a new baby they respond to kindness and company just like we do.
