Title: Beef Cow Milk Composition and Calf Scours
Author: Schipper, l.A.; Danielson, R.B.; Krieger, Karen L.
Description: The objectives of the research in this article were to determine protein, milkfat and lactose composition of beef cow colostrum, to compare these factors in colostral samples drawn from cows fed hay and cows fed silage, to determine the relationship between beef cow diet, beef cow colostral composition and the incidence of calf scours. Information on milk composition and factors influencing milk nutrient concentrations in beef cows is very limited. This research studied colostrum, since scouring in beef calves often occurs the first few days after birth.
