Hi,

I will leave others to comment on the shepherdess - but it can be used with SCA or Volac Lamlac or any make of milk for that matter. As with any feeding system just make sure it is mixed without lumps.

Here is one review of the feeder: https://www.suppliesforsmallholders.co.uk/sca-shepherdess-orphan-lamb-feeder-free-5kg-sca-milk-replacer-pri-1714.html?reviews_id=24

Thank you wasnt sure if there was some strange reason that other milk products couldnt be used with it.

Have one and it works fine lambs do well, takes a bit of work to keep clean and lambs chewing the teats becomes a pain. Simple to operate  and the heater lasts well :farmer:
