Abstract

Mastitis, or inflammation of the udder, is responsible for tremendous losses to the dairying industry throughout the world. The disease may be caused by several different types of bacteria, the most common of which, the Streptococcus, is responsible for about 80% of all cases of mastitis. The Staphylococcus is involved in about 10% of cases and the remaining 10% are caused by other micro-organisms.
