Red Cap milk for fawns

Hey everyone, hopefully this isn't a dumb question. I work all day and can't be home to feed every 4 or 6 hrs. If I give fawns red cap milk how long will that hold them over? Any suggestions for this dilemma?

Hey Bro, that isn’t a dumb question at all. When we first started out we had the same type questions.. I’ve always been told “ You don’t know, what you don’t know”.. If you mix red cap whole milk with Canned goats milk it is a sufficient replacement. That’s what we use when we bottle feed.

Great tip thank you! Does this allow them to go a little bit longer without being fed?
