Sprayfo Primo Lamb milk replacer is a non-curding or whey milk replacer

Many NZ lamb rearers will attest that Sprayfo Primo Lamb has significantly reduced instances of abomasal bloat in their rearing sheds.

Sprayfo Primo Lamb is a unique formula for lambs, containing hydrolysed wheat protein, which is proven to have better digestive properties than other commonly used protein sources, such as soya. Therefore, offering a safer option for young lambs and is safe to feed straight from colostrum*.

Produced with micronised encapsulated fat, Sprayfo Primo Lamb will enhance lamb growth, with less risk of scouring and better solubility.

The make-up also ensures better suspension - important when used in an adlib feeding system - and less fat build up in automatic feeding tubes.

Sprayfo Primo Lamb contains what we term a ‘safety package’ - consisting of:

  • An acid mix for a healthy abomasum

  • Immuno Active+ for a higher level of resistance

  • Villi Vital + probiotic for healthy small intestines

  • And a prebiotic for stable flora in the large intestines.

* Lambs should be fed colostrum for the first 2-3 days to boost their natural immune system.

Mixing rate for ad-lib feeding

Mix 200g Sprayfo lamb milk replacer per litre of water.

Ad-lib machine feeding

Ensure that you always follow machine manufacturing instructions, particularly for:

  • Set up

  • Feeding capacity/numbers

  • Cleaning

  • Calibration*

  • Mixing temperature

*Over mixing can be identified when product separates or froths. This can cause an issue through some semi-automatic feeding systems, eg. the Heatwave.

Mixing instructions for restricted feeding 

  • Always follow feeding instructions (see restricted feeding schedule)

  • Heat all required water to 40-42°C

  • Start stirring water, then slowly add lamb milk replacer powder, mixing until fully dissolved (approx 2 minutes). Do not over mix^

  • Best drinking temperature 38-39°C

^Mix to make up a litre, NOT on top of a litre, eg. add 160g lamb milk replacer (powder) to 840mL water to make 1L lamb milk replacer. This is an approximation. Over mixing can be identified when product separates or froths.


Restricted feeding schedule for lambs

Alternative feeding option: Sprayfo Alpha Lamb + Sprayfo Primo Lamb

If you have fed Sprayfo Primo Lamb milk replacer in the past and felt the lambs struggled with the transition from colostrum to a whey milk replacer, try feeding Sprayfo Alpha Lamb (casein-based or skim milk) powder for the first 2 weeks post-colostrum.

It could help to reduce the risk of nutritional scouring.

In week 3, switch the lambs onto Sprayfo Primo Lamb (whey) milk replacer to encourage rumen development.

The benefits of this alternative feeding option are:

  • reduced risk of nutritional scours in very young lambs (common during the colostrum to milk replacer transition)

  • switching to Sprayfo Primo Lamb from week 3 will encourage early rumen development

  • easier weaning transition

Weaning instructions for lambs

Weaning can start when animals are a minimum of 16kg AND consuming 250g concentrates per animal per day:

  • Slowly reduce concentration of lamb milk replacer or overall volume consumed over 1-2 week period

  • Continue feeding concentrates at 200-300g per day for at least a month.
