ZZ, I'm alwaysup for a good debate Buckskin you are rite on the %on dry verses wet that is were alot of people confused not understanding what they are reading just asumeing. Ive seen and raised alot of fawns on a lot of different replacrs but so far nothing compares to my good old red cap milk i'm using now. Much cleaner easier and my fawnsare healthy and doing better than they ever did on any thing else. I put gallon of milk in bucet of hot water for 5 min or so then pour sraight into botle feed wash out bottle done. Doesn't get any easier than that boys. None of this measuring mixing messy stuff i used to have to go threw plus bottles clean out much easier and i can spend more Quallity time with my fawns.

The 29% of fat content in the replacers is the dry content before mixing it with water. After mixing it is 8.6% We had this disscussion on another thread with John Swank and he helped clear up the dry vs. wet %. Rick


Rick.

That is good to know. If that is the case it's no wonder the red cape milk plan is working. Thanks

Guys......it's no big secret that many times we as people like to complicate something that is basically simple..........The red cap is as simple as it gets....AND IT WORKS! That is good enough for me! Now if things change I will be the first to admit I was wrong! But as for now......if it ain't broke....don't fix it!!!!

Hey Dennis goat milk would be better for you since you are feeding a bunch of goats.Although you do have a few whitetails you got from that place up North. Just a thought.

Well I guess joking is not permitted on this thread! I was hoping that we as a group could get over this. Did you take the JD, bud lite, busch serious to. 2:00 in the morning I thought it was funny and hoping to get to put the arguing to rest but nooo!! David I surprized that you would think I was serious, Virgil debate this, stick a whole gallon of red cap up your ??????? I think I'll stay off of this thread, life is to short. I have said in the past if it works for you stay with it. Just one old "FADING" mans opinion. ZZ

Ouch.........cmon guys....I hate seeing this kind of bickering....I knew ZZ was joking from the start.......you need to read a thread a couple times sometimes before you assume what it meant...........it is very easy to make someone mad by what you write.....so we all need to think before we write.......lets dro this red cap post for good it has been nothing but a fight from the beginning!!

I guess the only one that took it serious was me. Jokes on me! Virgil I apoligize. Later in the day I read my post and did get a chuckle out of it. Just kind of a funny picture, thats one way to win a debate! I had to laugh at myself for taking life so serious! Guys thanks for putting up with me and again I apoligize! I'm still going to stay off of this thread been nothing but trouble! I guess I'll blame it on Ferguson. ZZ
