Colostrum differs from milk both chemically and functionally. It provides to the suckling young not only essential nutrients, but also various bioactive substances. These substances protect the suckling young from various infectious agents and also modulate gastrointestinal growth and functional maturation. Many studies have documented the importance of colostrum ingestion for the growth, health, and survival of newborn animals. There is potential for therapeutic application of colostrum, colos-tral extracts, or colostrumborne growth factors in the treatment of patients with traumatized or diseased digestive systems in both humans and farm animals.
