Land O'Lakes Animal Milk Products announced improvements to its LAND O LAKES Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacement, which now features instant mix formulation.
"With this formulation update, LAND O LAKES Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacement can be mixed in approximately 15 seconds and is ready to feed to newborn calves," Dr. Tom Earleywine, director of nutritional services at Land O'Lakes Animal Milk Products, said. "The calf's ability to absorb immunoglobulins (IgGs) begins to diminish almost immediately, and as a result the time span between when a calf is born and receives colostrum is critical."
Designed to replace maternal colostrum in the first day of life, LAND O LAKES Bovine IgG Colostrum Replacement contains all the protein and fat of natural bovine-sourced colostrum. In addition to instant mixing, other benefits include:
* Delivers more than 100 g of IgG in a single dose;
* Greater rates of passive transfer compared to serum-based products, and
* Contains 95% IgG1, the only form of IgG known to get re-secreted from calves' blood back onto mucosal surfaces (gut and lungs) where it helps address enteric and respiratory diseases.
