MASTITIS is a major cause of financial loss in over half our dairy herds.
Losses result from treatment costs, milk discarded, permanent loss of milk production, culling, lowering of solids-not-fat content and loss of butter-fat production.
Mastitis CAN be controlled. This article outlines the basic principles of mastitis control in the milking shed.
