Short interval from calving to milking is essential for high IgG content in colostrum


The results emphasize the importance of milking as soon as possible after calving. By changing routines at the farm it is possible to milk most fresh cows within five hours after calving and thereby increase the likelihood of collecting high quality colostrum from 50% to around 80%.
