Please see the following table for feeding instructions. Add 1 level enclosed cup of dry Sav-A-Kid® Milk Replacer powder to 1-1/2 pints (3 cups) of warm (115-120° F) water and mix thoroughly with a wire whisk. The enclosed up holds approximately 4 ounces by weight (113 grams) of dry powder, equal in volume to a standard measuring cup.

Directions for Use as a Dry Powder Supplement
Sav-A-Kid® Milk Replacer may be top-dressed or mixed into grain, dry starter feed, or creep feed to encourage feed intake during the weaning period for kids, or to provide supplemental nutrients to stressed or under-conditioned goats. Mix 2 dry ounces (1/2 kitchen cup) into 1 pound of fresh dry feed daily. Discard any unconsumed dry feed each day to help avoid spoilage.
Refrigerate unused Sav-A-Kid® Milk Replacer solution immediately after mixing. Reheat gently over warm water and mix thoroughly before feeding. Do not microwave or freeze the solution. Discard unused refrigerated Sav-A-Kid® solution after 24 hours.
Store dry Sav-A-Kid® powder in a tightly closed container in a cool, dry place, and use within 6 months of manufacture whenever possible. Shelf life may be extended by freezing the dry powder in an airtight container.
