Streptococcus uberis is an important cause of mastitis in dairy cattle around the world. The organism has also been associated with mastitis in goats, sheep, camels and buffaloes, and with a variety of other conditions in ruminants and non-ruminant species. S. uberis has been reported in humans but ...
