Using an On-Farm Bacteriological Culture System
Mastitis is the result of an udder infection, typically caused by bacteria invading the teat end. Not only is it the most expensive disease on a dairy farm, but it can also be difficult to detect and treat. Identifying specific mastitis pathogens can help a producer tailor treatment and management decisions for each mastitis case. However, sending samples to a laboratory can be expensive and typically requires a week to obtain results.
