Calves with Sam: Another note on cross-sucking

25 Oct 2014 15:38:51 Z

In addition to the Calving Ease newsletter on cross-sucking (September, 2013 or click Here) data from a New Zealand study suggest another tool to use when trying to suppress this problem.[Margerison and Others, "The effect of solid feed diet on the oral and cross-sucking behavior of pre-weaned dairy calves." Journal of Dairy Science E-Suppl 1, #615]


Collect Colostrum Sooner rather than Later

25 Oct 2014 15:38:51 Z

"If I wait to collect colostrum from my fresh cows I will get more colostrum." Sorry, life does not work that way.


Post-wean digestion impaired in intensive-fed rapidly weaned calf

25 Oct 2014 15:38:51 Z

We have suspected from field observations that intensive-fed preweaned calves have problems digesting solid feeds in the early post-weaning period.


Calves with Sam: Identify pneumonia calves earlier

25 Oct 2014 15:38:51 Z

It seems to be pretty well accepted that early identification and treatment of calves with pneumonia is a best management practice.


Calves with Sam: Tuning our tools for measuring colostrum quality

25 Oct 2014 15:38:51 Z

Adopt a colostrum management protocol that includes measuring quality.


 

We are committed to strategic monitoring of dairy pasteurization systems.

The intent is to provide real time system analysis to assure optimal performance of your pasteurization equipment, process and protocols to deliver the highest quality colostrum or milk to newborn calves.
We are obsessive with quality work and our portfolio shows it. We specialize in microbiology, data logging, education and consultation in the management of newborn calf nutrition using pasteurized whole milk and colostrum systems. We remove the guesswork from your system’s performance and offer a benchmarking network to maximize your resources in feeding newborn dairy calves.

On Going Monitoring

Utilizing data from your system, we provide feedback that allows you to routinely monitor how your system is functioning. This information can be used to assure that established processes are being adequately executed and that one of your most valuable resources, your calves are being feed the best quality milk.

Bacteria counts; CFU’s/ml

(Colony Forming Units/ml)

Total solids and pH reporting on your milk /colostrum samples
Sampling done on Pre-pasteurization, Post-pasteurization, and at the time milk is fed to calves. Incorporating these monitoring tools enables you to optimize your investment and assure that your calves are routinely being fed the highest quality milk possible.

IgG concentrations available for the individual calf or colostrum samples

A quantitative number, more specific than total protein concentration, as to the immune system and overall health of your calf.

Pasteurization System Benchmarking

Data from your system is benchmarked to provide comparative information on the performance of your system and protocols. This information is provided only to you for your dairy.
