DairyTech Platinum Series Pasteurisers
The Dairy Tech Inc Platinum Series Pasteurisers use a process to heat treat colostrum that inactivates and kills the major pathogens in colostrum while maintaining immunoglobulins (antibodies) so that passive transfer of immunity is not affected.
Research has shown that calves fed heat-treated colostrum have better transfer of immunity at 24 hours of age compared to calves fed fresh, raw colostrum. This is likely due to the reduced bacteria in heat-treated colostrum that can interfere with absorption of immunoglobulins. The same calves had a significantly reduced risk of scours or any other illness in the pre-weaning period.
