Manual Mixing Instructions

  1. First determine the number of litres of milk to be fed.
  2. Measure half of this volume as hot (47-65 degree) water.
  3. To determine the amount of powder use a scale and weigh 190g times the number of litres of milk to be fed. (eg. 16L of milk requires 16 x 190g which equals 3kg of powder.)
  4. Add this milk replacer to the hot water and mix until dissolved.
  5. Add remaining water to obtain desired volume aiming for a final drinking temperature of 40 C. Re-mix prior to feeding.

Computer Feeder Instructions

  1. Calibrate the computer to add 235g of milk replacer per litre of water dispensed. This will result in 190g/l of reconstituted milk.

  • We have been feeding Mapleview Lamb Start for a year with great success! It flows so well through our Lac-Tek feeder. The lambs are growing really well, and we can wean by 28 days with no issues. We raised 300 lambs this past year and had no issues with bloat
