AbstractFull Text

The teat is an important barrier against invasion of mastitis pathogens into the udder. Tissue changes affecting teat opening allow penetration of bacteria into the udder. Calf suckling is nature's way of cow milking which induces little teat swelling or teat end callosity. This should be our...

Abstract

Cisternal milk evaluation by direct udder scanning ultrasonography was applied in two experiments in dairy cows. In Experiment 1, alveolar and cisternal milk volumes (by cannula) and cisternal area (by ultrasonography) were measured in the front udder quarters, 12 h after milking, in 18 dairy cows. ...
