Mastitis in Summer

When we think of mastitis and summer, we generally think of the risk of infection of Summer Mastitis to dry cows and maiden heifers. However, this is not the only mastitis that needs consideration. Indeed, in lactating cows, both SCC and mastitis rates rise during the warmer months. This dairy insight looks at the different mastitis infections that are prevalent during the summer months, the pathogens involved and provide advice as to what steps can be put in place to reduce or prevent mastitis at this time of year.
