The current investigation was undertaken with the aim of studying the effect of the sex of new born during various days of transition period on various physico-chemical, compositional and microbiological characteristics of bovine colostrum. With regards to the effect of sex of the new born on various physico-chemical, compositional and microbiological characteristics of colostrum, the specific gravity, fat, total protein, casein protein, whey proteins, lactose, total solids, solids not fat, and electrical conductivity of the colostrum samples obtained from the animals that had delivered a male new born was significantly (p ≤ 0.05) higher compared to the animals that delivered the female offspring, however the sex of the new born had no significant (p > 0.05) effect on the ash, pH and total plate count (TPC) content of the colostrum samples.
