Volostrum

Features

Volostrum is a natural “one feed only” alternative to colostrum for lambs and goat kids. 

Volostrum from Volac provides farmers with the best possible solution for the new born kids and lambs, as you only need to get one feed of Volostrum vs multiple feeds for the other colostrum products currently on offer.  The protein % of Volostrum is significantly higher than other colostrum products available.

Volostrum is perfect for farmers fostering orphan lambs.
