An apparent correlation between the clotting ability of cows milk and the prevalence of scour in suckling calves was investigated. Fifty-eight per cent of the milk samples of mothers of scouring single suckled calves showed impaired clotting ability. While the cause of this remains unknown there appears to be a link with diet. The poor clotting ability is probably a contributory factor in the aetiology of scour in the suckler calf, as the abnormality has only been seen in the milk from mothers of scouring calves.
