“Testing colostrum was a game changer for us.”
Brian’s Dairy is very conscious about the quality and cleanliness of their colostrum. Prior to receiving a colostrometer with their ColoQuick system, they would dump all the heifers’ colostrum and only feed cows’ colostrum.

That puts Brian in control of what he feeds to his calves.
