Reducing Mastitis in Dairy Cattle

Reducing Mastitis in Dairy CattleReducing Mastitis in Dairy Cattle

Reducing mastitis in dairy cattle can be an expensive and lengthy battle. Mastitis can usually be identified by several abnormalities in the udder, these can range from or include swelling, heat, redness or hardness. Other signs of mastitis may be visible in the cow’s milk such as a thin watery appearance, flakes or lumps. When a cow is infected with sub-clinical mastitis, it does not show any visible signs of infection or abnormalities making the job of catching the infection early even harder.

Mastitis Infection can be caused by several factors, such as –

  • Thermal/mechanical or chemical injury from milking equipment.
  • Poor bedding hygiene – Dirty bedding can lead to cross contamination between cattle. The use of sand/grit bedding can block teat ducts causing irritation and thus leads to infection.
  • Poor dairy hygiene leading to transmission during milking through the equipment or operator’s hands.

Mastitis infection can be treated with a course of long-acting antibiotics, which generally are not cheap, and when you have multiple infections to treat, the costs can soon stack up. And if that’s not bad enough, any milk collected from the infected cows cannot be sold until all traces of the antibiotics have left the cows system.

There are many ways you can help defend against this costly infection, some of the basic traditional methods are listed below.

  • Culling chronically infected cattle
  • Correct dairy cattle nutrition, for a healthy immune system
  • Good housing management
  • Good teat prep pre/post-milking

Introducing The Teat Sanicleanse and Air Sanicleanse Systems. Eliminate alternative pre-milking preps where costs are involved in paper towels, medicated wipes, laundry towels etc. The Sanicleanse systems give you improved results from the start and lead to a higher quality of milk being produced along with lower vet bills.

Chemical usage is low as the teat scrubber only requires minimal amounts to complete its routine.
