A comparison of the effect of teat dipping and teat spraying on teat condition, somatic cell count and the incidence of clinical mastitis



A comparison of the effect of teat dipping and teat spraying on teat condition, somatic cell count and the incidence of clinical mastitis



Cattle Practice 11(3): 181-184



Cows from 10 commercial dairy herds were subjected to either teat dipping (Treatment 1, with 472 cows) or teat spraying (Treatment 2, with 517 cows) with Deosan Super Ex-cel (5000 ppm iodine) as a disinfection procedure against clinical mastitis. Milk somatic cell counts (SCC) and teat condition were recorded regularly. It was shown that there were 62 mastitis cases each in Treatments 1 and 2.
