Why is the quality of colostrum so important?

In the first weeks of life, a calf needs antibodies to build up immunity. A calf doesn’t have it’s own antibodies at birth and needs good quality colostrum to build up this passive immunity. Illness because of pathogens like Cryptosporidium, Rota-Corona-Virus and lung problems can be prevent by a good colostrum management. Feeding your calf a good quality of colostrum directly after birth will make your calf stronger with a better immune system.

What should I do is the quality of the colostrum is not sufficient?

Measuring the quality of the colostrum doesn’t happen very often. After calving it is not possible to improve the quality of the colostrum. The quality of the colostrum depends on the transition period and the age of the cow. When the quality will be monitored it is much more easier to improve the transition period of the dairy cow on time. When cows have a low quality of colostrum it is possible that the minerals in the transition period must be improved. It is also possible that the amount of protein in the ration is too high. Discuss with you feed advisor or veterinary how to improve the transition period.
