I would like to collect and save some colostrum from one or two of my mares this year, never know when it will be needed. And I was wondering what the procedure was for this? Is there a special type of container it should be stored in? How long does it last when frozen? Should it be in a regular freezer or a deep freezer? Anything else I should know?

Thanks so much!

Same here. My mare is skirting actual milk all over and I need to know what to do with it.

I just spoke with my vet about this issue a few days ago. Having 9 babies due, I, too, would feel more comfortable with colostrum on hand. He advised me to collect the colostrum from the first mare to foal. Wash the udder well and milk the colostrum into ziplock freezer bags, about 2 ounces in a bag. Then freeze it and hope you don't need it :-)
