We recommend that colostrum be pasteurized immediately after harvest and either fed at once, or cold stored for future use. can be refrigerated or frozen. This allows you to build up a bank of colostrum that is ready to go for the next calf.

Did you know that all mothers and babies, regardless of feeding method, benefit from the enhanced oxytocin, closeness and comfort of Skin-to-Skin contact following birth and during their first feed?

Did you know that colostrum is all your baby needs until it transitions to mature milk between days 2 and 5? While your breasts will not feel full the day that you give birth, you already have enough colostrum to nourish your baby.

Francesca: "My son was born at 27 weeks & I was told the one thing I could do for him myself was to express . I am so proud of myself for persevering to express to ensure he had my milk"

Did you know that the first hours and days of an infant's life are the most dangerous? This is when they are at their most vulnerable and prone to infection. This critical period is also when a mother produces the first milk, called COLOSTRUM.

As soon as the calf is born we milk to cow. The quality of colostrum decreases over time, so the sooner the better. We try and feed the calf 2 times in the first 0-10 hours after birth. Colostrum is how the baby calf will fight infection and disease

I do love it when a newborn calf is up within 30 mins, hunts out the like a heat seeking missile, a lick & a nuzzle to check he's got the right place then latch on & suck like there's no tomorrow. Good boy!

Success! Once a finds its feet we hold our breath until we see it successfully nurse. They must have that all important within the first 24 hours to ensure health and survival. Foggy took no time at all!

, the thick yellowish milk produced in the first few days after birth, has everything your newborn baby needs, including the right amount of water.
