|Final model estimates for preweaning morbidity and mortality events in a randomized trial of the effect of feeding a lacteal-derived colostrum replacer (CR) compared to pooled maternal colostrum (MC) in calves|
|Outcome||Type of colostrum||Number of calves||β coefficient (SE)||P value||OR* (95% CI)|
|Diarrhea||Lacteal-derived CR||295||47||-0.540 (0.212)||0.011||0.58 (0.38 to 0.88)|
|Respiratory disease||Lacteal-derived CR||295||63||0.007 (0.205)||0.974||1.01 (0.67 to 1.51)|
|Omphalitis||Lacteal-derived CR||295||1||-0.078 (1.417)||0.956||0.93 (0.06 to 14.86)|
|Treatment with antibiotics||Lacteal-derived CR||295||99||-0.410 (0.174)||0.018||0.66 (0.47 to 0.93)|
|Healthy calves**||Lacteal-derived CR||295||187||0.380 (0.171)||0.027||1.46 (1.05 to 2.05)|
* OR is the ratio of the odds of outcome in calves fed lacteal-derived CR to the odds of outcome in calves fed pooled maternal colostrum.
** Calves raised from birth to weaning without morbidity or treatment with antibiotics.
