We pull ours at 24-48 Hrs. thus giving the fawn plenty of time to consume colostrum and not making it to difficult to get the fawns started on the bottle.

We pull ours around 18 hours and give a shot of vit B and have had excellent results. But do what your comfortable with.

I have done this. BE CAREFUL. Anyone who's started a fawn on the bottle knows how frustrating it can be. Fawns can aspirate the milk replacer and wind up with pneumonia...just be careful on who you pick. Plus, it's tough to find a person-let alone a kid, who will actually work these days! They are experts at getting themselves into drama that disallows them to carry out the duties you are paying them for. Food for thought.

I completely agree, but if you find someone that actually wants to go to veterinary school (there is a lot more than you think) odds are they will take it seriously, as they need animal contact hours to make it into school in the first place
