Golden frisky is a nutritional and easy mixing lamb milk replacer. Simply mix 2oz (50g) of Golden Frisky powder with warm water (30°C), and make up to ½ pint (250ml) milk for one lamb feed. Feed this 4 times a day, with feeds spread out as evenly as possible each day.
From one week of age, the total amount fed may be increased to 2 ½ pints (1.5 litres) per day, split over 4 feeds. Ad-lib Feeding: Mix Golden Frisky powder at a rate of 250g of powder to 1 litre of water at room temperature. Feed ad-lib via a teat and container. Specially formulated lamb concentrate and clean straw should be offered ad-lib from the third week onwards.
Clean water should always be available to lambs. Weaning: Weaning is most successfully done when Golden Frisky is withdrawn abruptly, providing the lambs are old enough and intake of solid feed is adequate. As a guide, lambs should be at least 2.5 times birth weight (9-10kgs/20-22lbs), consuming 250g/½ lb per day solid feed and at least 35 days old for weaning to be successful without a growth check.
