Mastitis in dairy cows
Mastitis causes a cow’s udder tissue to become inflamed and painful. Reducing its occurrence helps produce more high-quality milk and increases your herd’s saleable milk yield.
Mastitis treatment and control is one of the largest costs to the GB dairy industry and is a significant factor in dairy cow welfare
The best way to control mastitis is to protect cows from getting new infections, which can come from the environment or from other infected cows
Working out when cows get infected and where most infections are coming from is the first step. You can then focus on preventing new cases of mastitis in your herd
