One of the pillars of health in cattle is colostrum administration to calves. This guidebook aims at highlighting that not all colostrums are equal. Each case must be studied in depth, in order to give the adequate passive immunity the neonatal calf needs. The book is presented in an effective and easy-toread way, and offers answers to the questions that can arise when carrying out this task.
