Abstract

Veira, D. M., Chapinal, N. and Nadalin, A. 2011. Short Communication: Does the presence of the cow influence the absorption of immunoglobulins by the neonatal dairy calf? Can. J. Anim. Sci. 91: 349-352. Holstein calves were kept with their dams for 0.5, 6 or 24 h after birth. Calves were fed 85 g colostrum kg-1 birth weight 1 h after birth, and were prevented from suckling their dam. At 24 h, all calves had similar serum IgG levels indicating that the presence of their dam had no effect on IgG absorption.
