Clean Colostrum and Ig Absorption


The successful transfer of passive immunity via colostrum to the newborn dairy calf continues to be a significant challenge. In spite of years of research and implementation of systems for colostrum management, over 30% of calves exhibit failure of passive transfer (FPT) (NAHMS, 1993). A discussion of the challenges of transfer and development of immunity in the calf represented a significant portion of the program of a recent ADSA Discover Conference held in 2008 entitled: “Biology of the Calf”. It is interesting to note that this conference resulted in the generation of more questions than answers concerning the value of colostrum as well as causes of FPT.
