The Importance of Colostrum Management

The future of the dairy herds on most farms, lies with their heifers. Good management from the very start is therefore key to a successful herd and is essential to reduce mortality and morbidity in calves.

Colostrum is one factor that can be easily influenced on farm and probably the single most important factor for new-born calf management, playing a significant role in the health and vitality of the neonatal calf. This DAIRY insight summarises best practice in colostrum management, highlighted by recent scientific literature.
