Got a couple of lambs that are going to end up on the bottle, is there a good reason why I cant use up the half a bag of calves milk that I've got in the shed?

The presence of Copper would be the biggest reason ,just as with cattle compound feed. You might get away with it ,but I would be reluctant to say go for it.

I would think the powdered should be fine , Brother gets a lot of cow colostrum to use for lambs that need their belly filled if ewe is short of milk or whatever
The lambs do fine on it

I thought adding extra copper had been stopped on all livestock products unless prescribed by a vet ?? Maybe it was just for pigs I am thinking about though
