Sav-A-Kid and Sav-A-Lam milk replacers have been reformulated to include probiotics, yeast extract and updated vitamins and minerals. This change helps goat kid and lamb raisers proactively manage health by supporting the digestive system and helping support a strong immune system.
"We’ve reformulated our kid and lamb milk replacers to help grow healthy kids and lambs,” said Julian (Skip) Olson, technical services manager for Milk Products. “Both products provide consistent nutrition, whether you feed milk replacer as a supplement or to replace doe or ewe milk.”
Sav-A-Lam milk replacer: Whether sheep are raised to show or breed, for meat or lifestyle, Sav-A-Lam milk replacer is a high-energy formula to meet their performance goals. The high-energy, all-milk formula contains 30% fat and 23% protein. The new formula also includes probiotics and yeast extract to support a healthy digestive system and a more diverse population of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Updated levels of vitamins and minerals help meet lambs’ requirements for growth.
Sav-A-Kid milk replacer: It’s important to feed an optimum protein-to-fat ratio to provide goat kids with the right nutrition for growth through weaning.

It can also be used as a dry feed supplement to encourage consumption in stressed or underweight kids and goats.
Simple feeding and mixing instructions on the package help make Sav-A-Kid and Sav-A-Lam milk replacers easy to feed. Three sizes are available through local retailers: 4 and 8 lb. pouches and a 25 lb. bag.
