Milk substitute for macropod (kangaroo & wallaby) joeys with greater than 70% of their pouch life completed.
Joeys at this stage have short to dense fur, and look like a miniature adult. Joeys may begin grazing from pouch and making use of some green feed. They soon emerge from the pouch and solid food plays an increasingly large part in the diet. Faeces soft to firm green pellets.
Specifically formulated to match the composition of late lactation kangaroo milk.
High energy (fat content) milk, to cater for increased activity levels.
Low in carbohydrate to aid in digestion and assist weaning onto solid foods.
High levels of protein to coincide with the peak growth rate.
Making up Milk
To make 100mL of milk: Mix 25g of powder (3½ scoops) with 80ml of warm water.
To make 1 litre of milk: Mix 250g of powder with 800ml of warm water.
Add about half the water to the powder first and mix to a paste. Then make up with remaining water and mix thoroughly. Water is preboiled to ensure that it is sterilised. If the water is too hot it can cause the milk to curdle. If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder. Wombaroo contains elevated fat levels, so the milk needs to be well mixed to prevent it from separating out. An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities. Milk can be stored in the fridge for a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. It may be useful to store frozen milk in small portions (e.g. ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out. Once thawed out, discard any unused milk, and wash feeding utensils thoroughly.
