Beef and Lamb Colostrum Feeding – Innovation for Agriculture

26 Aug 2017

Why feeding colostrum is so important
▪ No transfer of maternal antibodies across the placenta to the developing foetus in ruminants so lambs/calves are born without protection against disease.
▪ Research has found up to 50 per cent of total lambing losses occurred in the first 48 hours after birth are due to poor colostrum absorption/intake

Make sure colostrum is fed Quickly, Quietly to avoid stress, and the right Quantity and Quality are given.
