What is Bovine Colostrum?
Colostrum is the first form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals prior to giving birth, and for the first few days thereafter, until it actually turns to milk. Nutrient-rich colostrum provides the essential passive transfer of immunity from mother to newborn mammal. It is also naturally packed with immune modulators and growth factors to promote muscle and tissue growth.
Bovine colostrum is the colostrum from dairy cows, collected from USDA Grade A dairies. These cows have full and free access to grass pastures and are rBST free. The colostrum we collect is GMO free and is commonly considered a waste product because cows produce so much. After a newborn calf has received its full share, about 2-3 quarts depending on size, and most colostrum is discarded. Bovine colostrum is the most easily transferred among different mammals, and its benefits are not species-specific.
The colostrum we collect comes from small dairies where the average herd is 60 cows. These cows are practically members of families and are treated as such.
