I have done the same thing numerous times to finish the bag. Never has there been a problem. Allen

Where do you guys get your colostrum from?? In the bag must be a powder formula? Thanks! Charlie

you can order colostrum "replacer" online but I don't think you can buy it at your farm store,

all I have ever seen at the farm store is colostrum "supplements"

The colostrum is only beneficial to the fawn for the first 24-30 hours after birth. With that said it will not hurt them to keep feeding it if that's what you want to do. I also have fed it for the first week on some fawns just to use up some extra I had laying around. Good luck!
