Hi I was wondering does anybody know if you can use cow clostrum for other kinds of animals? My friend rescues animals and I was thinking maybe she could use some of my cows clostrum and milk. Does anybody know if this will work?
one year we had a adult turkey get attacked. we were sure it was a goner. but decided to try and save it. we put him in the bathtub with a heat lamp and fed it thawed colostrum. it took a few days but he healed quickly. We've fed colostrum to many of our animals if they were sick or hurt. I believe it works but I don't "KNOW" that it does ;D

one of the sheep ranchers here uses cow colostrum for his lambs instead of trying to get it from the sheep the cows are tested neg for johnnies(sp?) Suzanne

Cow colostrum is commonly used for baby goats ... avoids some of the diseases that are transmitted through mothers milk from goat to kid.

I use it when I get sick - works wonders!!!! Sandy
Home to - Eunice and Daisy, two great danes, one goat, one ferret, 25 hens, and Penelope the ever popular pig. Plus 16 year old twins who could care less about my little zoo. farmwackywack.blogspot.com/
I'd think that it would just about have to be better than no colostrum at all. It won't have all the same antibodies, but enough things are in common, especially in babies, that it might just be good enough in a pinch.

When my sweet, momma Dachshund "Hope", passed away after giving me five newborn puppies by natural birth and another two by Cesarean, I started all seven puppies on cow's colostrum because they had not been able to nurse their momma. The vet was absolutely shocked when three weeks later I brought in seven, healthy, happy pups for her to check. She told me she never thought I would be able to save them all.
I recently saved a small, one pound Mini Nubian doeling from death by dripping cow's colostrum in her mouth for 24 hours and then tubing her with cow's colostrum.

I would make sure the cow is johnes negative. I know of a goat breeder who accidently introduced Johnes using cow colostrum after losing a doe at kidding.
Trying to keep track of: 1 Husband, 2 grown kids, 5 year old twins 40ish dairy goats (Alpine, Nubian, LaMancha) The Cows: Molly Moo (mystery cross) Candy (Guernsey) Lady A (Guernsey) Miss America (Guernsey) Dora (Guernsey) Skylar (Guernsey) Guernsey Heifers - Caterpillar & Luna a smattering of pigs and poultry 5 worthless city dogs too many cats
It works on Camelids also - many Llamas seem to have difficulties producing enough milk and/or colostrum, and not only do I use it, but I supply it to a breeder friend of ours.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
