MASTITIS DETECTION MADE EASY
Bovine mastitis is harming your cows and your profits
Mastitis is the most widespread disease in the dairy industry, costing New Zealand farmers at least NZD$200-400M and farmers globally $40B every year.
It is typically caused by bacteria entering through the teats and infecting the udder tissue, and can either exist as sub-clinical mastitis (no visual signs) or clinical mastitis (redness, clotted milk, swelling).
There are a range of different mastitis types, some that are contagious and can jump from cow to cow (Staph. aureus), and others that come from the environment (E. coli and Strep uberis).
- Increasing your herd somatic cell count, dropping your payout from most processors
- Reducing milk production by 2.1% for every doubling of somatic cell count over 100,000 cells/ml
- Forcing you to treat infected cows with antibiotics and withhold their milk, and even cull them if treatment doesn’t work
- Wasting hours of your time and energy trying to find it by stripping/RMT your herd.
