Colostral and calf serum immunoglobulin G levels of Jersey and crossbred cattle and their effect on the health and survival of neonatal calves

Colostral and calf serum immunoglobulin G levels of Jersey and crossbred cattle and their effect on the health and survival of neonatal calves

Indian Journal of Dairy Science 59(2): 73-76

Colostral and serum immunoglobulin G (IgG, a major immunoglobulin class present in bovine colostrum and neonatal serum) levels were estimated in postpartum cows (Jersey and crossbred) and new born calves, respectively, at first milking and 24-48 hours postpartum, using single radial immunodiffusion (SRID) assay. Mean IgG concentrations (mg/ml) at first milking were 62.8+or-28.06 and 76.44+or-51.1 for Jersey and crossbreeds, respectively.
