Colostrum is harvested from the cow after she calves. It is placed into bags (4L, 3L or 2L) and those bags are then placed into the water bath in Matilda. She heats the bags to 60C and holds them there for 60 minutes to properly treat the product and eliminate harmful pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. She then cools down the product to either be fed immediately or stored in a freezer.
If frozen, then Matilda is used as a thawing/warming unit to prepare the feeding for a new calf. At half the price of any competitive product on the market, pasteurising and warming your valuable colostrum has never been easier or more cost-effective.
