Dr. Al Kertz joins us as we explore the role of colostrum in dairy cattle using a study of New York Holstein herds.

Sometimes it might seem like we overemphasize the role of colostrum in dairy cattle. But then when you consider it largely determines the young calf’s immunity status, ability to ward off the calfhood scourges of diarrhea and respiratory problems, and their ongoing health and productivity as heifers and then cows, it is justified to learn more and do more to insure that calves get the benefits of colostrum. Dr. Al Kertz joins us to talk about a study of New York Holstein herds and colostrum epidemiology.
