It is important the piglet receives colostrum at birth. Colostrum should be available for at least 24 hours. 

If colostrum is not available from the sow, Jumpstart™ Full Cream Colostrum should be fed.

Feeding recommendations
  • Mix 150 grams of Anlamb™ per litre of water.
  • Add Anlamb™ to half of the required volume of water and mix thoroughly.
  • Top up with water to the correct volume and ensure the temperature of the milk 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.
