    I have been feeding my bottle baby goat milk from my pygmy---I am getting about 10 bottle baby wethers the end of this month, and have to give them something- I cant afford goat or cow milk for that many- What is the best milk replacer to put them on- I have used replacer for calves before, but not kids. Opinions please....

    Land -o -lakes kid replacer is the best IMO I have used this and I know someone else who has great results with it for their lambs (of course its that lamb variety not the kid ;) )
