IBR-free colostrum for calves

If a cow comes into contact with the IBR-virus (infectious bovine rhinotracheitis), the cow will produce antibodies against it. These antibodies are not limited to the blood, but will circulate into the colostrum and milk. In this way, a calf can also receive IBR antibodies.

This does not harm the calf, as it is the antibodies that are transferred and not the virus itself. However, A.I bulls must not have IBR antibodies as it is then uncertain whether these came from the mother’s milk, or from an actual IBR infection.

To prevent a cow from passing over IBR antibodies to her calf via colostrum, VaccaCol® may be used instead. Colostrum us given at the ratio of approx. 10% of the calf’s body weight, which means an average feed of 4 litres (800 grams VaccaCol® dissolved in water).

If you need to be absolutely sure that no IBR antibodies are passed on, VaccaCol® (IBR-free cow colostrum) should be given. Col-O-Calf may contain IBR antibodies and can be given if you know that the mother has IBR antibodies, or if it does not matter if the calf does or does not have IBR antibodies in its blood.  

You can also mix these two products into your own cow’s colostrum. This will improve the quality of the colostrum, increasing both the protein and the antibody content.
