The aim of the work is to study equine passive immuno transfer through colostrum. We consider Igs concentration and transfer mechanism toward the lymphatic system until reaching the blood circulation. There is a close relationship between colostrum IgG concentration and colostrum specific gravity. Normally it’s recommended to collect 200-300 ml hight quality colostrum (specific gravity > 1.08) within 12 hours from foal birth but hyper- immunization program could be assessed feeding all the foal with about 500 ml hight quality colostrum.

Abstract

The aim of the work is to study equine passive immuno transfer through colostrum. We consider Igs concentration and transfer mechanism toward the lymphatic system until reaching the blood circulation. There is a close relationship between colostrum IgG concentration and colostrum specific gravity. Normally it’s recommended to collect 200-300 ml hight quality colostrum (specific gravity > 1.08) within 12 hours from foal birth but hyper- immunization program could be assessed feeding all the foal with about 500 ml hight quality colostrum.
