Our long standing milk replacer Merricks has sold their product to a company which does not deal with retailers. Sheepman Supply is having a difficult time locating a wholesaler for Merricks.
Therefore we have decided to make a switch to Pipestone's Shepherds Choice Lamb and Kid Milk Replacer. We are pleased to announce this new association with Pipestone. We will be able to maintain last years prices on both the 8 pound bucket and the 25 pound bag.
