LAND O LAKES® Colostrum Replacement

LAND O LAKES® Colostrum Replacement

A calf’s immune system is naïve at birth; she requires high-quality colostrum within the first few hours of life to achieve successful passive transfer of immunity through absorption of IgG across the intestinal wall and into circulation.
 
LAND O LAKES® Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacer is specially formulated to replace or supplement maternal colostrum as an aid in the treatment of failure of passive transfer. LAND O LAKES® Colostrum Replacer provides a newborn calf with important antibodies, including immunoglobulin G (IgG), to help develop her immune system.

Best Results
Test maternal colostrum with a Brix refractometer to determine quality.
 
If the Brix refractometer reading is:
  • Below 18% - Discard maternal colostrum and use LAND O LAKES® Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacer.
  • Between 18-22% - Use LAND O LAKES® Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacer in conjunction with maternal colostrum.
  • 22% or greater – On-farm maternal colostrum may be used if at least 1 gallon is available per calf.
Feed calves the first serving of colostrum within 1 hour of birth and a second serving of colostrum within 8-12 hours of birth.
