  • When relating the results from this study to recommendations for colostrum management it can be concluded that although colostrum Ig concentrations are significantly lower in a continuous milking management system an adequate passive immune transfer can still be achieved based on colostrum quality provided colostrum feeding management is optimal.

  • Other immune components of colostrum include the major components of the innate immune system, such as lactoferrin, lysozyme, lactoperoxidase, complement, and proline-rich polypeptides (PRP). (wikipedia.org)
