Many tests are available to equine practitioners for evaluating the newborn foal’s IgG serum level, but this is the only practical and economical test available for evaluating the mare’s colostrum.
The JorVet Equine Colostrometer utilizes only a small 15ml sample of the mare’s colostrum by comparing the specific gravity to distilled water in a plexiglass hydrometer. From the specific gravity obtained, a determination can be made whether or not the foal will be receiving colostrum with adequate IgG concentration. Another benefit is if the colostrum specific gravity is fairly high, up to 250cc can be frozen for a colostrum bank.
