Anyway, here's a good recipe... 'cause sheep don't do well on cow's milk and our sheep just didn't like goat's milk...EWWWL ICKIE!
So, I looked online...lamb milk replacement was so expensive...and we're just farmers. Then, I found this site called 'JUST ANOTHER DAY ON THE FARM' ...ahhhh..much better, making milk myself..what a great idea. I modified his recipe to fit us and this is what I got...
This makes up about 1/2 gallon of milk replacement...O.K?
You will need:
A container...we used an old half gallon milk jug.
1 cup measuring utensil
8 oz. [one cup] instant dry non fat powered milk
4 teas. buttermilk power
16 teas. whipping cream
16 teas. 1/2 and 1/2 [half and half]
16 teas. full-milk plain yoghert
8 cups warm water
Shake well until mixed...and serve. We used a baby bottle. Our lamb loved it and did well. Jan and Steve
