    Feed hay on the first day. Lambs can then be adapted to a full feed of Market Lamb Head Start with minimal hay over the next 1 to 2 days depending on the level of stress imposed on the lambs during shipping.

    Market Lamb Head Start should be fed at a rate of 1 to 5 pounds per head per day. After the starting period, lambs should be gradually adjusted to the appropriate growing or finishing ration for the balance of the feeding period. Fresh, clean water should be available at all times. The need for supplemental free choice mineral feeding will depend upon the kind and amount of forage being consumed.
