Ensure that fawns receive colostrum at birth. Colostrum should be available for at least 24 hours, and longer if possible.

If hind colostrum is not available fresh cow, goat or Jumpstart™ Full Cream Colostrum are suitable alternatives.

Feeding recommendations
  • Mix 200 grams of Anlamb™ milk replacer (LMR) per litre of water.
  • Add Anlamb™ milk replacer (LMR) to half of the required volume of water and mix thoroughly.
  • Top up with water to the correct volume and ensure the temperature is about 40oC.
  • Always follow the feeding instructions, do not increase volumes or concentrations above recommended levels.
  • Clean fresh water should be available at all times.
