Colostrum is the 'first milk' produced by the cow or ewe. This milk contains essential antibodies that protect the calf or lamb against disease. It is crucial that the calf or lamb receives these antibodies as their immune systems are not fully developed when born. Calf and lamb morbidity is linked to poor quality colostrum.
Sometimes the first milk is not available from the mother, it might be of poor quality or the calf or lamb might not suckle. To maximise the impact of the antibodies in the colostrum it needs to be fed as soon as possible after birth as the absorption level decreases over time. Using a good quality replacer or supplement can reduce the probability of morbidity and mortality.
