Nick, We fed it last year and mixed it with Land o Lakes Does Match and had excellent results with it! PM Rick Browning for a feeding schedule if you need his cell let me know.

Good Luck with your fawns.

ps enjoyed our visit thanks for stopping in

You don't need to mix it -friends and I have had the healthiest largest fawns ever using just red cap.We weighed my largest fawn in Nov. when I aied her 97 pounds.

We mix ours with ultra #24 milk replacer and we had huge fawns also.I know some dont mix with replacer and give the fawn all they want and it works that way also.The way i feel is i want them on hard feed grasses,grain..asap and i cant see a fawn with 15-20ozs of milk in its belly bein in the mood to eat(Think wayne after thanksgiving turkey)anything.I hear people say it works so i guess you can go either way you feel that will work for you.I have ricks bottle feeding on email if you need it.Just pm your address!!
