Colostrum is a miraculous, life-giving substance full of growth factors and nutrients designed to spur growth and health of the new-born. Many valuable substances may be extracted from colostrum for use in human infant food or human medicine.

The market is pretty limited, but frozen colostum is reputed to sell for $1.20 per pound – that’s $120 per CWT.

The specifications are exacting. Only colostrums from milk cows that have previously calved is allowed – no colostrums from springers. Finally, only milk from the first day following calving is permitted.
