Teat Condition

Maintaining good teat condition is a crucial line of defence against mastitis, as opportunistic pathogenic infection via the teat canal is one of the most common causes. Teat condition can be affected by disease, but is most commonly due to incorrect parlour set up or routine. This Farming Note looks at:

  • Importance of good teat condition
  • Causes of poor teat condition
  • Diseases of the teat
  • Practicalities of teat scoring

Issued November 2015.
