Complete and Foolproof System
ColoQuick is the only complete and fool proof system in the marketplace. Every dairy farm benefits from having a way to ensure an easy and fast feeding of the highest quality colostrum, at the right temperature (105F), full amount (1 gallon) in as little as fifteen minutes after the birth of the calf.
- Contamination during handling
- Pooling, which lowers quality and increases spreading of diseases to many calves
- Bacterial growth during extended cooling and warming periods
- Destruction of Immunoglobins
The system makes for clean and easy handling – as one of our customers put it: “The processing of colostrum was a job nobody wanted,” he says. “Now I’ll walk in and see it all put in bags lined up to be pasteurized. It must be easier if people are willing to do it.” …read more
The Business Case for ColoQuick
Besides labor savings, the ColoQuick by Golden Calf Company has significant financial return. With the system, the producer is able to see immediate financial gains of $200-$300 or the value of selling a live and healthy calf for future herd replacement needs. In the long term, you can expect a minimum first lactation increase of 1,800 lbs with some studies showing as much as 8,800 lbs increase due to earlier age at first calving. The economic benefit thus ranges between $234 and up to $1,144 in just the first lactation using $13.00 cwt for milk sales. These numbers do not include the cost of feed savings of $50-$75/mo for the extra time the animal needs to reach the desirable size for breeding.
