The Lamb Surrogate Feeder will provide a constant supply of warm milk to pet lambs. In the case of triplets, quads or larger births then the ewe won't be able to feed all of the lambs adequately or in the case of a ewe dying or abandoning her lambs, depriving them of milk, the Surrogate lamb feederis the ideal solution. The Lamb Surrogate Feeder is thermostatically controlled to ensure the milk is kept at an ideal temperature. The Lamb Surrogate Feeder has a maximum capacity of 50 litres and can feed up to 24 lambs.
Manufacturing: The feeder is manufactured from polyethylene which is a strong and durable material. Polyethylene is hygienic, easy to clean and has been UV stabilised.
Design: The Lamb Surrogate Feeder is designed with efficiency and and ease of use in mind. The teats are easily removed for cleaning and replacement, there is an easy access lid for cleaning and filling and the inner tank is easily removed for cleaning.
How it works:The Lamb Surrogate Feeder consists of two containers. The main body is filled with water up to the mark and then it is heated and thermostatically maintained at a temperature warm enough to heat the milk stored in the second inner container. The milk is fed through clear tubing to the teat which has a non return valve. The non return valve not only ensures the supply of milk is constant but it also prevents the milk in the feeder from becoming contaminated.
Feed up to 24 lambs: Unlike calves, who will drink until there is nothing left, lambs will only drink enough to fill them up. This means a single Lamb Surrogate Feeder with 4 teats is enough to feed up to 24 lambs who will simply come and go to the feeder as needed.
