What is Colostrum?

Home What is Colostrum?

Colostrum is the first liquid excreted from mammary glands immediately after birth.

It is composed of antibodies, growth factors, colostral fat (special energy), antimicrobials, nutrients and 200+ elements that are integral to establishing an optimal start to any mammal’s life.

In calves, colostrum is the only substance that a calf needs to build an immune system to deal with its environment and prosper to achieve its genetic potential.

Natural untreated bovine colostrum is often varied in concentration of immune factors and is often contaminated with E. Coli, Salmonella, Paratuberculosis (Johne’s Disease), and other pathogenic elements that can be passed from dam to calf.

These inconsistencies and contaminants can compromise the start of life of a calf.

SCCL solves this problem so that every calf can get the clean, consistent, safe, colostrum it needs
