Susukan anak kambing anda..!!

Sebaik lahir, anak kambing amat memerlukan susuan ibu yang mencukupi. Sekiranya ia menghadapi masalah, besar kemungkin anak kambing tersebut akan mati atau terbantut pembesarannya. Berdasarkan pemerhatian kami, susu adalah makanan terawal yang perlu dipastikan diminum oleh anak kambing. Lebih banyak susu yang dapat diminum, lebih cepat pembesaran anak kambing tersebut.

Anak kambing yang baru lahir perlu susu ibu yang mencukupi

Selama ini, kami hanya bergantung dengan susu ibu kambing. Selalunya ibu kambing yang mempunyai susu yang banyak akan mempunyai anak-anak kambing yang sihat dan besar. Kami sedang mencuba satu teknik 'susukan anak kambing'.. Kami cuba berikan susu tepung sebagai supplement tambahan kepada susu ibu yang sedia ada. Dulu, hanya kambing bermasalah susu yang kami berikan susu tepung ini.

Setiap anak kambing akan diberikan susu tambahan menggunakan botol

Bagi teknik ini, walaupun sudah menyusu dengan ibu mereka, kami akan cuba suakan lagi anak-anak kambing dengan susu tambahan. Targetnya, supaya anak kambing mengambil susu sebanyak yang mungkin. Kami sedang memerhati sama ada ianya akan membuahkan hasil yang lebih baik.

Penyusuan Anak Kambing.Panduan ini saya dpt dari http://agrolink.moa.my/jph/dvs/commodities/goat/goat-2ae.html


After birth, within 6 hours of birth, kids are given colostrum.

Colostrum are excreted for 3 days by the doe.

Usually kids suckle without assistance, if not, the doe is milked and the kids are bottle-fed.

Colostrum intake is very important for antibody production to fight against diseases and it also initiates immune response.

Kids' navels are dipped in iodine to hasten drying and it also prevents infection (if it is wet, it encouranges the multiplication of bacteria).

Kids depend on mothers milk from 3 – 4 months. Beyond 2 months milk intake decreases and the kids start grazing a little. After 3 - 4 months, kids are weaned and start grazing.

Weaning is done in stages, whereby the concentrates, grass and milk are given during this conversion stage. The doe and kids are kept in the pens. After 4 - 6 weeks, they are grazed in nearby areas for easy monitoring.

Pens for kidding doe and kids should be clean and dry. Damp pens are chilly. As kids are sensitive to cold and thus may easily contract pneumonia.

If colostrum are not given, a mixture of milk with a bit of vegetable oil and egg white can be used to stimulate intestinal peristalsis.

Kids can be fed from other does' milk after milking or suckled directly from other does if they permit. Powdered milk can be mixed and given. Cows' milk can also be given by mixing with 1-2 drops of fish oil at each feed. About 170 grams of milk are given (less than a cupful) every 4 hour (QID). This amount can be increased as the animal gets older.

Sekian, terima kasih.
