Things You Need For Raising Orphan Lambs

  • Lamb milk replacer, Frisky is a good brand
  • Bottles, plastic or glass
  • Rubber teats
  • Electrolyte to be used for a speedy recovery when the lamb is sick
  • Warm, cosy draft free place for the lamb to sleep
  • Colostrum powder, this needs to be the lambs first meal. Providing the lambs with antibodies that they usually get from mother
  • Feeding tubes, for feeding the first meal of colostrum
  • Naval dip
  • Penicillin, some farmers like to give half a cc at birth
  • Hot box, its like an incubator for lambs to heat them up if they are very cold and ill
