Veterinary Viewpoints: Colostrum – Liquid Gold for Newborn Calves

In utero, calves do not receive immunoglobulins (Ig = antibodies) from the dam, instead, they rely solely on passive transfer of antibodies through colostrum intake shortly after birth to acquire immunity. The quantity, quality and timing of colostrum intake are all essential factors in ensuring the calf receives nutrition as well as optimal protection against common diseases during the early stages of life.
