Treatment of Mastitis Based on Milk Culture vs Time Post-Calving

Dr Mick Clews, veterinarian and lead researcher, discusses  the results of a study presented at the 30th World Buiatrics Congress in Sapporo, Japan in August/September 2018. The study was also presented at the 2018 National Mastitis Council International Bovine Mastitis Conference in Milan, Italy.

This study investigated whether case by case diagnosis and treatment of mastitis using in-clinic culture was effective in New Zealand conditions. The video also includes independent commentary from farm owner Ross Shaw on what the results of this trial have meant for farm economics, and for on-farm management of mastitis.
