Ensure Colostrum Quality

The most important meal of a calf’s life should be served properly. By testing each batch of colostrum you can maximize its usefulness and safety. With this tool, you will be able to rank quality levels of all colostrum and feed accordingly.

Blood Serum Total Protein (BSTP)

One of the best ways to know if your colostrum feeding protocols are working is to measure BSTP. By using the step by step guide that comes with each dip style refractometer you can easily test whether your transfer of passive immunity was successful. Knowing which calves did and didn’t receive the proper immunity is critical for future care. Low passive transfer signifies high probability of calf scours.

Testing Milk Solids

Unsure about feeding your waste milk to calves? With this refractometer you can easily measure the percentage milk solids of each batch and use a milk balancer to offer the same level of nutrition day after day. If you have concerns about bacteria load give us a call to discuss calf milk pasteurizing.
