My Orphaned Lamb Milk Replacement Recipe

by NickPiggott cc
O.K.....Our sheep had two cute black lambs...BUT, one rolled under the fence when born....the 'Mama' sheep would NOT take her back. Well, Steve brought it into the house and we became sheep parents right then and there...even our dog, 'Daisy May' helped and responded the first night by sleeping with that cute little lamb ,this she did on her own, because the lamb was crying.... and, we didn't know what to do. Thanks 'Daisy'.
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 teaspoon
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
