It’s not a secret to anyone: If you put billions of bacteria in your calf by using contaminated colostrum, how can you expect her to be healthy? Here are some tricks to guarantee clean colostrum:
- Clean pail, clean udder, clean bottle and clean milker
- Cool down the colostrum as quickly as possible if you aren’t feeding it immediately. Frozen bottles of ice are very useful.
- Colostrum MUST BE COVERED! Flies are dirty and harbor tons of germs!
