Calf Note #168 – “Where does the protein go?” is now available at Calf Notes.com
In the article, Calf Notes author Jim Quigley discusses the fate of non-IgG protein in colostrum.
“Of course, our goal is to provide IgG to the newborn calf so it is protected against pathogens in the environment,” Quigley writes. “But what happens to the rest of the protein? It’s an interesting observation and may provide some insights into the newborn calf’s metabolism.”
