The feeding of calves during the first days of life or even immediately after birth is crucial for their further development.
First milk, also known as colostrum, has a higher percentage of immunoglobulins and nutrients compared to normal cow's milk. Consequently, the new-born calf needs to take in higher quantities of the high-quality colostrum straight away.
It is recommended that a colostrum store be created with frozen colostrum. This means that there is always a stock of high-quality first milk available. If the quality of the colostrum after birth is poor (e.g. in heifers) or the amount produced is too low, frozen colostrum can be used instead.
