Mastitis and its control. The principal cause: infectious bacteria

Producteur de Lait Quebecois 16(5): 23-25
Mastitis and its control. The principal cause: infectious bacteria
The main causative agents of mastitis are Streptococcus agalactiae and Staphylococcus aureus, which are found mainly on the mammary gland and transmitted from one cow to another during milking. A study of 320 randomly selected farms carried out in the Richelieu-Yamaska region of Quebec (Canada) indicated the presence of S. agalactiae in 47% of dairy herds and S. aureus in 93% of herds; only 5% of herds were free of these 2 bacteria.
