Western Australia, Orphan lambs, Rearing lambs
First Page Number
Last Page Number
Each autumn, inquiries are received concerning the rearing of orphan Iambs. It is well known, of course, that lambs are successfully reared on hundreds of farms with the aid of cows' milk and a baby's bottle. In most cases the lambs seem to thrive despite irregular and haphazard feeding. One of my earliest boyhood memories is my concern at allowing a lamb to swallow the rubber teat off a feeding bottle. But even this indigestible addition to the diet apparently caused no harm and I was not required to make explanations.
