Colostrum or first milk is the milk produced by mammals in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum just prior to giving birth. Colostrum contains key antibodies to protect the newborn against disease. Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contains immunoglobulins specific to many harmful pathogens.

As antibiotics became more prevalent, interest in colostrum waned, but, now that antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens have developed, interest is returning to colostrum as natural alternatives to antibiotics.
