NO. When done properly colostrum can be successfully pasteurized to eliminate the same pathogens that can be found in the milk. These pathogens are even more dangerous in colostrum since these bacteria and viruses can easily pass through the gut wall along with the large proteins that impart immunity to the calf. Colostrum can be safely pasteurized at 140F for 60 minutes to remove all pathogens without significant damage to immunoglobulins. Colostrum pasteurization should be as much a part of herd biosecurity as milk pasteurization.
