The Three Q's Of Colostrum

Colostrum intake directly affects a calf’s health outcome and growth. Colostrum-deprived calves have little or no immunity to the many pathogens in their environment.

Remember the three Q’s...

QUALITY: Feed calves with quality colostrum from mature cows

QUANTITY: Minimum 3 litres over two feeds in first 6 hours

QUICKLY: As soon as possible, and at latest 6 hours after birth

Definition of typical analysis

Many calf milk replacers (CMRs) have added medications to protect calves from coccidia e.g. Deccox, Bovatec. Please be aware that if bobby calves are being fed milk replacer instead of colostrum for the 4 days prior to slaughter, the CMR should NOT have any feed additives included, even those that state they have a Nil withholding period.
