Management effect on colostrogenesis in small ruminants: A review.
Colostrogenesis, identified as the prepartum transfer and accumulation of immunoglobulins from maternal circulation into mammary secretions, is a discrete and finite stage of mammogenesis.
Colostrogenesis in the bovine species, the process of forming colostrum, occurs 3-5 weeks prior to parturition [7].
Moreover, the process of colostrogenesis has been shown to be initiated under the influence of hormones and occurs during the last weeks of pregnancy when steroid concentrations of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) are highly elevated [7], [24], [25].
The high protein% in both precolostum and first colostrum secretions shown in the present study could be explained with the specific transfer of IgG1 from the blood to mammary secretions which distinguish colostrogenesis stage in bovine [24].
