Feeding Amounts & Instructions

Begin creep feeding at about 4 days of age.

Feed free choice to lambs until they reach 100 lbs of body weight. If lambs are to be kept past this weight, they should be switched to Stock NCA Sweet 16% or Sheep Complete Pellet, at this time. If kids are to be kept past this weight they should be switched to Sweet Goat 18% at this time. Supply clean, fresh water at all times. A good quality forage may be offered. If lambs are expected to gain at peak levels, forage should be restricted.

WARNING: Do not feed to sheep or goats producing milk for food.

Sheep Feeding Guidelines

Day 1: Feed high quality colostrum at a minimum of 5-10% of the lamb’s body weight. Ex: A 10 lb lamb needs 8-16 oz colostrum total. Feed 50% within 2-4 hours of birth, and the other 50% within 12 hours of birth.

Day 2, Onward: Offer free choice, fresh, clean water at all times. Offer free choice Lamb N’ Kid Pellet (contains Ammonium Chloride and Decoquinate), beginning with small amounts, until 100 lbs body wt. Can be fed right through to slaughter.

Day 2-35: Feed Exceed Lamb Milk Replacer. See product page for feeding schedule and tips.

Day 28- Onward: Introduce good quality 2nd cut hay, starting with a small handful daily (ideally 5-10% of total dry feed).

Maintenance: Switch from starter to Sheep Complete Pellets OR Stock NCA Sweet 16% fed free choice with limited amounts of high quality forage. If grain consumption exceeds 2-2.5% of body weight per day, supplement with a high quality forage.

Pasture or forage only diets: Feed Sheep 1:1 Mineral free choice. Optimal intake is 1-2 oz/head/day.

Poor Quality or Lack of Forage: Feed Forage Extender Mini Bites to replace up to half of the forage in the diet, pound for pound.
