Shine Ewe-reka is made with ewe milk – the closest milk replacer to mothers milk!
To help improve lamb health and performance Shine Ewe-reka is made with whey products from ewe’s milk. Ewe milk has long been used to make cheese’s such as Roquefort, Manchego and Bleu D’ Auvergne and we have taken the by-products of this cheese production to make a milk replacer as close to mother milk as it can be. Unlike cow’s milk this milk will contain antibodies to specific sheep diseases that will help to keep orphan lambs healthy.
Shine Ewe-reka – the number 1 formulation in Europe – used to rear nearly 1 million lambs last year.
Help and Advice
Preparing lambs for weaning is extremely important to ensure they do not go backwards in terms of growth and health once milk feeding is suddenly removed.
Choosing a rearing system for orphan and multiple lambs that matches labour availability and numbers in combination with providing the right nutrition is key to success.
Good colostrum management is vital to ensure the health and well-being of your lambs Colostrum contains high levels of antibodies, and has much greater total solids content than whole milk.
