Raising Drop Lambs

I will be receiving many drop lambs in the next couple of weeks and I have never done this before. Any suggestions on how to feed them, what to feed them, any medications required immediately and how long before they can go to market? Anything else that might help me out would be much appreciated.

Must be a "local idiom" mabe? On tha otherhand, We do speak of a Ewe "droppin" a lamb so mahaps a "day old"?Preweaner?Or a newly weaned Lamb. A feeder in sheep lingo?

I have a lamb that the mother will not take it. It was born on Feb.7 and I am wondering how much milk I should be giving it! If anyone has any comments please send them. Thank you

Oops, sorry about that! A drop lamb would be a day-old. Any suggestions to help raise these babies successfully would be much appreciated. I'm currently enjoying my horses and cows but the sheep are a brand new field for me. Thanx, Richard
