Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacement for Calves
Put LAND O LAKES® Colostrum Replacement to work for your herd’s future to prevent disease and death losses due to inadequate passive immunity, prevent transmission of pathogens, and improve long-term performance of replacement heifers.
Start calves right. Calves are the future of every dairy herd and delivering proper nutrients right after birth is vital to their survival. Feeding essential disease fighting antibodies and immunoglobulins (commonly called IgG) should be accomplished during the calf’s first critical hours of life. On many farms, this is done by feeding clean, maternal colostrum. For some, subpar colostrum collection technique and the added risk of disease spread has made the decision to use a colostrum replacement a wise one for the health and safety of calves.
It is a natural product made from 100% colostrum which provides immediate energy for newborns and contains all the antimicrobials, nutrients, and growth factors found in maternal colostrum. Easy to mix and feed, a single dose of Colostrum Replacement fed within 2 hours of birth prevents failure of passive transfer and gets newborns off to a healthy start. With a 2 year room-temperature shelf life, Colostrum Replacement is a good to have on-hand at all times for instances when maternal colostrum doesn’t provide enough nutrients.
