Harper Adams Agricultural College

In a controlled trial, 45 lambs consisting of quads, triplets and twins were divided into three equal groups. 15 suckled the ewe from birth, 15 were removed from the ewe and given a measured amount of ewe colostrum and 15 were removed from the ewe and given Lamb Volostrum only.

Results showed the lambs given Lamb Volostrum to be as healthy and viable as those in the other two groups, proof that Lamb Volostrum supplied protection and energy.

Commercial Farm Trials

Over 400 lambs have been involved in trials on over thirty commercial farms. Most breeds and management systems have been represented with flock sizes ranged from 200 to over 800 ewes. 

Every farmer who took part in these trials expressed complete satisfaction with the results achieved using Lamb Volostrum.
