Mastitis Control and Cell Count Monitoring

Mastitis is a very costly disease resulting in increased milk wastage, treatment costs and culling rates.

A mastitis breakdown is normally a      multi-factorial problem requiring an in depth investigation into the cause of the problem. The best approach to the problem is to take 10 to 20 individual milk samples from mastitic or high cell count cows and a bulk milk tank sample for laboratory culture and bacterial identification.

At Market Hall Vets, we offer a subsidised mastitis investigation service to help farmers identify the source(s) of the problem and then implement cost effective measures to eradicate the problem.

If you are struggling with an increase in mastitis or cell counts then please contact the surgery for an informal discussion. If necessary, we will arrange to visit your farm and investigate the problem further.
