    Would goat's colostrum (which I have in the freezer) be better for a lamb than no colostrum, or would it matter? I'm just thinking ahead, first lambs due next week; last year I lost a ewe and the lambs from that ewe survived on goat's milk, but had a really raggedy start (no colostrum). At least I would know they'd get the benefit of the doe goat's bose and cdt boosters.

    Ha, if I could. Raising sheep got a whole easier when I started raising dairy goats for milk.

    Certainly better than nothing but any colostrum is best if it's from your home farm.
