Colostrum Ig levels associated with IE in gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts. Graphics show colostrum Ig amounts with number of IE, associated with (a) gastrointestinal (nzero = 423, n1 = 55, n2 = 18, n3 = 7 and n4 = 2) and (b) urogenital tract (nzero = 423, n1 = 205, n2 = 56, n3 = 30 and n4 = 10). All values are represented as mean ± SD. All data are expressed in milligrams of Ig per milliliter of colostrum (mg / mL). Statistical analysis was performed using Pearson correlation test. **p < 0.01
