Feeding Directions (Early Weaned/Nursing Foals): Early weaned foals can be placed on the orphan foal feeding schedule. The age of the foal will determine the place to start in the feeding schedule. Nursing foals receiving an inadequate amount of milk from the mare can be placed on the orphan foal schedule. Start with half the amount of Foal-Lac recommended for orphans, then adjust up or down according to the foal’s appetite.

Feeding Directions (Orphaned Foals): Directions for use must be carefully followed.

1. The foal should receive colostrum during the first 24 hours after foaling. A physical examination of the foal by your veterinarian is recommended at this time.

2. One cup (cup enclosed) of Foal-Lac Powder weighs 102 grams.

3. The following schedule for feeding Foal-Lac milk replacer is a guideline for foals that will mature to about 500kgs (1100 lbs.) bodyweight. Since each foal is an individual, more or less milk replacer can be fed, depending on its needs. Pony foals should be fed about half of these quantities. Draft breed foals will require up to twice these quantities.

6. Good quality tender hay, salt, and water should be provided free choice starting at 10 days of age.

7. The foal should receive exercise daily to stimulate appetite and to develop bone and muscle.
