Directions For Use: Mixing: Add one enclosed cup* (level full) milk replacer powder to 1& 1/2 pints warm (110° Fahrenheit) water and mix thoroughly. For best mixing, sprinkle powder onto the water and mix with a wire whisk. Always mix milk replacer solution as needed for immediate feeding.
*The enclosed cup (level full) holds about 4 oz milk replacer powder by weight. Periodically weigh a filled cup to ensure accuracy.
Feeding: The table below shows typical amounts to feed based on kid age.

**Evenly space the recommended number of feedings within a 24-hour period.
General Care Recommendations: Feed 2–4 oz colostrum four times the first day. Ensure that one colostrum feeding occurs within two hours of birth. If maternal colostrum is not available, use Manna Pro® Kid Colostrum or Manna Pro Colostrum Supplement. Begin feeding goat starter feed during the second week. Sprinkle a little Kid Milk Replacer powder on the goat starter feed to get the kids nibbling. Maintain a regular feeding schedule. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Kids can typically be weaned when they are consistently eating 1/2–3/4 lb (1/4–1/2 lb for pygmy/dwarf breeds) kid starter feed per day. Work with your veterinarian to develop a comprehensive vaccination and health program. If you have questions about your feeding program, please contact Manna Pro at (800) 690-9908.
Important: Individual kids vary in their requirements and appetite. Adjust the feeding rate accordingly, being careful not to overfeed milk replacer.
