Mares colostrum quick facts

Did you know?

Colostrum is the first milk loaded with antibodies.  It is vital for the foal to get a good strong dose of colostrum very soon after being born.

The mare’s colostrum will be replaced by milk within about 24–36 hours.

Generally, a healthy foal weighing around the 50 kg mark will consume approximately 10 – 15 litres of milk daily.

Foals grow rapidly in their first month of life, gaining on average 1.6kg per day- and are expected to double their birth weight in just 4 weeks! To achieve this, they need to consume 25% of their body weight in milk/feed daily.
