2022 Lamb Formula Fundraiser
Formula fundraiser helping feed hungry lambs
Bottle time is the favourite time of day of every lamb who comes into our care.
What you may not know is that every 16kg bag of Lamb Formula costs our organisation $90.
If you would like to help us cover the cost of a bulk order of 20 bags of formula please donate here.
What better way to spend your money than by helping to feed the hungry mouth of a baby in need.
When lambs arrive into care they are fed according to age and weight. The majority of lambs who reach us are newborn or only a day or 2 old. They commence with 2-3 hourly feeds of approximately 50-60ml. As their weight increases so does the amount they are fed with the feeds gradually becoming less in frequency. At around 2 – 3 weeks old most lambs are being fed 4 times a day at 6 hourly intervals. This continues until the lambs are approximately 10 weeks old (weight dependent) at which time weaning commences. The weaning period lasts for about two weeks during which time a bottle is removed every few days and the lambs transition more onto hard food such as grass hay, chaff and pellets.
Feeding lambs is a very costly but necessary expense for our organisation. Our formula fundraiser helping feed hungry lambs will help us to cover the cost of formula so that we can rescue more young lives.
