Managing colostrum is critical to calf-hood health. With proper colostrum feeding, you can improve not only the calf morbidity and mortality rates, but also increase milk production. Colostrum feeding should be done within 30 min of birth with at least four quarts of colostrum containing a total of 200IgGs, minimal bacterial count, and be at 105F. Getting all that done can be tricky, especially with multiple people responsible for the calving area. That’s why we bring you the best colostrum management systems in the industry.

5 step to colostrum management by Golden Calf Company Calf HeroWhy Colostrum Management

Calves Done Right

Calves are the future of your dairy. Much like an architect, who must design a solid foundation in order to build a skyscraper, you are in charge of building a foundation for the future of your dairy herd. Research has proven that a calf, which has been fed colostrum properly, is less likely to get sick, more likely to have an increased daily gain, calf-in sooner, and most importantly become a better milk producer. The first hour is the single most important hour of the calf’s life and one that will impact your herd two years from now, so wouldn’t you want to do it just right?
