Many disease causing organisms can be transmitted to calves via colostrum feeding, such as Mycoplasma, Listeria, E.coli, Salmonella and perhaps most importantly, the bacteria that causes Johne’s disease (Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis or MAP).

Research has shown that pasteurizing colostrum can reduce morbidity (calves being ill) and mortality rates in calves during the first 3 weeks of life.
