bottle-fed some goat colostrum
Gotta love our goats!! 🥰.

My vet has saved some foals from mine and I recently mentored a new owner with saving a bottle calf, supplying goat colostrum at midnight!

I always keep frozen colostrum. A local licensed rehabber has my number.

Truly the best…my girls had more than enough colostrum and we’ve saved many animals in the past year with it.

Saving colostrum -- much depends on the doe & # of kids. Yes a good producer and only a single kid is a candidate. For me, I have full sized Saanens who are heavy producers. When they kid and have a gallon in the udder, there's plenty to save!! They have that & produce more for 24 hrs easily. Even day 3, it's partial colostrum. So, you can be saving. 🥰. Add to that the numbers I have....my vet was given 3/4 gal this yr & I saved that much. Kids were well fed, too.

Thank you for that info! And apologies to the OP for the highjack.
