Abstract Measuring colostrum quality on commercial farms is essential, as its quality has a large influence on calf welfare. Although data from commercial Irish dairy farms shows large within, and between, farm variability in colostrum quality high blood serum IgG concentrations were found among calves on farms. This indicates colostrum management standards are good, which contributes to good welfare.
