We werken nauw samen met boeren, dierenartsen en wetenschappers om onze kennis te vergroten. Kennis die we graag delen.

| Colostrum, Milk powder

When asked which is best, a teat or a bucket, Sjaak gave a clear response: a teat. “The calf has to work hard at obtaining its milk. In addition, the posture is better when drinking from a teat, so the risk of powdered milk finding its way into the rumen is reduced.”

| Colostrum

Good-quality colostrum contains antibodies in the form of immunoglobulins, abbreviated to IgGs. Thanks to their ‘life history’, older cows deliver better-quality colostrum. But the antibodies are not the only elements that make colostrum a unique product.

| Colostrum

Dairy farmers with a milking robot can quickly milk the cow, for the first time. “But remember hygiene!” emphasised Erwin. “Make sure the dump bucket is clean or clean the dump bucket carefully if it has not been used for several days.” It may contain a residue of milk from another cow.
