Abstract

Administration of vitamin, mineral and antimicrobials at the end of lactation plays potential role in preventing mastitis in dairy cows. A total of 255 cows dividing into five groups (A=50, B=50, C=50, D=50 and E=55) at their late gestation period were selected to explore the effect of vitamin E,...

Abstract

Dairy heifers represent the future of a dairy herd, and are expected to freshen with a healthy and well-developed udder, capable of producing an optimal amount of high quality milk. A high proportion of heifers have infected mammary quarters at calving, with coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS)...

Abstract

Heifer mastitis is a disease that potentially threatens production and udder health in the first and subsequent lactations. In general, coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) are the predominant cause of intramammary infection and subclinical mastitis in heifers around parturition, whereas ...

Abstract

Background: Heifers can calve down with intramammary infections (IMI) and udder damage. This will have a negative impact on their longevity, future milk yield and financial return. Co-housed pre-weaned calves that are fed fresh milk have the opportunity to suckle each other's teats and may infect...

Abstract

Identification of risk factors for subclinical intramammary infections (IMI) in dairy goats should contribute to improved udder health. Intramammary infection may be diagnosed by bacteriological culture or by somatic cell count (SCC) of a milk sample. Both bacteriological culture and SCC are...

Abstract

A thoroughly validated radioimmunoassay with functional separation of IGF-1 from IGFBP was used to measure IGF-1 concentrations in quarter milk samples, which had been collected monthly from 8 farms in Germany, from May to December 1998. Data concerning herd management and health status were also...

Abstract

Five cows were given intramammary injections of staphylococcal toxoid, staphylo-cocci killed by formol and heat, and coli bacilli killed by heat in the last 2 months of pregnancy. Titres of staphylococcal antitoxin and agglutinins in milk and serum increased progressively but milk titres fell...

Abstract

Studies on MASTITIS confirmed reports that a closed herd will remain free after Sir. agalactiae has been eliminated. This is not so with staphylococcal infections which treatment with antibiotics usually failed to remove from infected udders. Work on calf hood vaccination with Br. abortus Strain 19 ...

Abstract

II. Epidemiologkai studies on MASTITIS in cattle were continued. Penicillin was used in an attempt to eradicate infections of Str. agalactiae and of staphylococci from the udder. Complement fixation tests for TUBERCULOSIS in cattle were carried out using an antigen prepared from distilled water...
