Downland Lamb Force gets lambs off to a flying start

The Awre family farm 800 lowland ewes mostly Texel’s in Gloucestershire and this year scanned at 180% including the hoggs. For the past few years they have used Downland Lamb Force colostrum before feeding Downland Lamb Force ewe milk replacer, both supplied by Taylor Farm Supplies, Tewkesbury.

“Since feeding the Downland Lamb Force colostrum we have never looked back. The lambs get off to a better start.”

After colostrum the lambs are fed Downland Lamb Force ewe milk replacer. This year they have noticed how much better the milk stays together once mixed. “The milk is less watery on top due to staying in solution longer with less sedimentation and generally the powder mixes better”

This ensures that all lambs get their correct nutritional intake and makes it easier with manual mixing required.
