Brix Refractometer measures the quality of colostrum. The optical Brix Refractometer measures sugar content in liquids such as milk, colostrum, fruit juices, soft drinks and yeast cultures. It can be used in the lab or in the field by putting a few drops of liquid onto the prism and reading the scale under ambient light. The Brix Refractometer features a 0-32% scale, focusing eyepiece, automatic temperature compensation and comes in a hard carrying case. Measuring the quality of equine colostrum is easy, with Brix scores of 22% or higher representing good quality in colostrum. 18-21% readings represent colostrum that can be used for second feedings, and scores below 17% will need to be supplemented.
