More on Transition Milk
"Transition Milk is Too Valuable to Sell"

This article [click HERE to go to it online] by Maureen Hanson quotes Dr. Jeremy Schefers from the University of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, If the link does not work, try this URL
http://www.dairyherd.com/advice-and-tips/calf-and-heifer/transition-milk-too-valuable-sell 

He is quoted as saying that transition milk is easily worth $30/gallon or $300/cwt because of its value in  promoting good gut health. 

This blog reinforces my transition message in my June 15th Blog on the value of second milkings - about half of the samples tested 50g/L (that is the national threshold for acceptable first feeding colostrum).
