Foals that do not receive adequate colostrum suffer from a syndrome called failure of passive transfer, which is estimated to affect up to 25% of newborn foals and predisposes them to life-threatening diseases. It is recommended to have colostrum readily available before you expect your foal(s) to be born so that you will have it when you need it.
Colostrum is not just for foals! It is recommended that horse owners provide colostrum to all of their horses on a continuous basis. Colostrum's bioactive agents can boost overall immune function, promote intestinal healing and help prevent immune system hyperactivity in horses of all ages. It contains proteins (antibodies) that provide protection against bacteria and viruses.
