Don’t forget that we have several vets trained as ‘Plan Deliverers’ for the AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with this, it’s a bespoke plan for individual farms to combat mastitis, involving the following:

  • A detailed survey of the farm
  • Analysis of milk bacteriology
  • Analysis of disease patterns from somatic cell count data and clinical mastitis information

All this information is put together to decide where most of the mastitis is coming from (contagious or environmental bacteria; dry period or lactation origin) and what changes would bring most benefit to the farm. Progress is reviewed regularly. Trial work showing full compliance with the advice resulted in a 36% reduction in mastitis, with two thirds compliance with the advice resulting in a 20% reduction
in mastitis.

As always, call the practice if you’d like more information.
