Had to do a emergency c - section. Saved the calf but not the cow. What do you all use for colostrum replacement ?

Milk the cow. She won't kick you now
Thank you! The product we had thickened so fast we could use it. Usually they get that first milk. This was an emergency c-section. Cow was not doing well. Wasn’t in labor. Calf has a rough road ahead I fear. But we’ll do what we can.

you will need to use whatever your local store has available like Ky hills posted in his reply. just make sure it is a colostrum replacement and not a colostrum supplement that is meant to be used along with colostrum if the the cow for example does not have enough or poor quality colostrum. I use calf's choice hi cal colostrum. hope they both make a speedy recovery.
