Milk Sampling is Key to Mastitis Control

Milk Sampling enables identification of the causative pathogen and the appropriate controls to be actioned. 

Before any diagnostics tests take the right steps for successful milk sampling.

GRADE 1

Mild Clinical Mastitis



No clinical signs, milk clots only




Bacteriological testing for pathogen identification
🡪 treatment decision


A diagnostic tool to identify the pathogen(s) causing mastitis, at the same time indicating the respective sensitivity to anti-biotic treatment

Identify Gram –ve or Gram +ve bacteria in milk samples within an 8-24 hour period

No growthGram negativeGram positive
No Antibiotic + monitor cow
Staphylococcus or StreptococcusStaphylococcus betalactamase resistent
Antibiotic
intramammary tubes
Antibiotic
intramammary tubes

GRADE 2

Moderate Clinical Mastitis



Udder clinical signs only & T<39°C




NSAID
(Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)



Bacteriological testing for pathogen identification
🡪 treatment decision

A diagnostic tool to identify the pathogen(s) causing mastitis, at the same time indicating the respective sensitivity to anti-biotic treatment

  • In-clinic or on-farm
  • Results within 24 hours

OPTION 1:
Injectable antibiotics
OPTION 2:
Intramammary tubes
Review Milk Recording data
Individual cow cell count results provide an essential part of the evidence to select cows for treatment. Take into account a cow’s last three SCCs, its teat end quality, and look at whether it has had a case of clinical mastitis within the last three months.
Low SCC cows – teat sealant only
High SCC cows - Intramammary DC tubes

We are part of the essential milk industry, so we are part of the solution.

We provide tools to gain access to the best advice, take preventative action and make evidence-based decisions.
