Abstract

Recently published work as described by the authors highlighted the extent of Complement activity in bovine milk. Localised mastitis infection occurring in the mammary glands of dairy cows is readily detectable by the levels of somatic cells in milk. Thus, it is opportune to monitor Complement...

Abstract

The innate immune response of milk somatic cells in cows to Streptococcus dysgalactiae ssp. dysgalactiae was investigated by deliberate intramammary challenge. Cows were challenged with 2,500 colony-forming units of Strep. dysgalactiae DPC 5435, previously isolated from a clinical mastitis case....

Abstract

On most dairy farms teat dips are applied to the teats of cows either before or after milking in order to prevent pathogens from gaining access to the mammary gland via the teat canal. In the present experiments, a natural teat dip was developed using a fermentate containing the live bacterium ...

Abstract

Mastitis in dry cows has traditionally been controlled with long-acting intramammary antibiotic formulations. However, the widespread use of antibiotics, particularly for prophylactic application, is likely to be restricted in the future. As a consequence, there is now a growing requirement for...

Abstract

Lacticin 3147, produced by Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, was evaluated for mastitis control in a study conducted jointly at Moorepark Research Centre and at University College, Cork, Irish Republic. 45 quarters were selected as untreated controls, 85 were infused with teat seal, and 50 were...

Abstract

Lacticin 3147 is a broad-spectrum bacteriocin produced by the food-grade organism Lactococcus lactis. Lacticin 3147 is active at a neutral pH and has been shown to be bactericidal to streptococci and staphylococci in vitro. The effectiveness of an intramammary teat seal formulation, and a teat seal ...

Abstract

Lacticin 3147 is active at neutral pH and is bactericidal to streptococci and staphylococci in vitro. The effectiveness of an intramammary teat seal formulation, and a teat seal containing lacticin 3147 was evaluated at drying off in 68 uninfected quarters of 18 cows. Following infusion of teat...

Abstract

In a search for alternatives to antibiotics for use in mastitis control, a new broad-spectrum bacteriocin, lacticin 3147, was isolated from kefir grains. When tested for its ability to inhibit a range of mastitis pathogens, lacticin 3147 was effective in inhibiting streptococcal and staphylococcal...
