Hazards of Bacterial Contamination of Colostrum
Dr. Sandra Godden, Univ. MN

I was working on a post to our clinic website in the Metric Calf Resources section when I found this link to this resource by Dr. Godden. She gave this talk at a dairy meeting in Arizona in 2009. But, it does a great job on this topic. Why should we avoid feeding contaminated colostrum.

And, it summarizes the research work done on using potassium sorbate to slow down bacteria growth in colostrum.

So, click HERE for her paper. Or, paste this URL in your Internet browser: http://www.dairyweb.ca/Resources/SWNMC2009/Godden.pdf .

Enjoy.
