The latest video from DairyCo, on the 3 Qs of colostrum management.

The 3 Qs of colostrum – Quantity, Quality, Quickly should be observed

Quantity – The recommendation is to give a first feed of 3 litres or 10% of body weight. This should be followed by another similar feed within 12 hours of birth.

Quality – Good quality colostrum contains at least 50g/litre of IgG. Any colostrum containing less than 20g/litre should not be used

Quickly – It is important that calves receive their first colostrum feed as soon as possible after birth, ideally within 2 hours
