Economic consequences of different methods for detection and control strategies against subclinical mastitis

The aim of the first study was to estimate the economic results in a dairy herd related to different mastitis control strategies, which covered prevention and treatment of clinical and subclinical mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae and Eschericia coli, by use of the Monte Carlo simulation technique.

Over the past 18 years, SCC have dropped dramatically while milk yield has increased in large herds in the USA as are a result of the implementation and optimization of recommended milking procedures.

Challenging the status quo in milking routine in large herds

Globally, herd size continues to increase due to various factors: the removal of the quota system in Europe, the expansion of Chinese dairy production, primarily through an increase in larger herds, and the expansion of the large herd segment, predominant in new investments in Oceania, South America and Northern Japan.Read more

Predictive Biology: What does the future hold for mastitis control?

Ultimately, disease control programs have one goal: to predict disease and take measures in order to prevent disease from occurring. According to Dr. Martin Green, Professor of Cattle Health & Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, more can be done to prevent mastitis. Green spoke on the subject at theRead more

The data suggests that there is not necessarily a relationship between the number of bacteria in bedding and in bulk milk.

Does RMS bedding deteriorate milk quality or udder health?

Risks, benefits and optimal management of recycled manure solids for use as bedding. The use of recycled manure solids (RMS) as bedding in dairy operations offers significant advantages in terms of comfort and overall costs. Animal by-products (ABPs), however, have the potential to spread animal disease. If not properly disposedRead more
