Details

In addition to neonates having an immature population of microflora of the gut in early life, newborn calves are given maternal immunoglobulin via colostrum feeding after birth, not via the placenta from the dam. Because of these factors, the incidences of diarrhea and other diseases are increasing in neonatal young calves, and their health has been adversely affected. This new book discusses how in the early life in calves, VFA production, particularly that of n-butyrate, is considered to have essential significance for colonic health, as is the case in other mammals.
