The most effective and profitable way to deal with mastitis in the long term is by preventative measures; these will not eliminate the disease but they will reduce the number of new cases in the herd.

The main preventative measures are:

  • The correct use of an efficient, well-adjusted milking machine.
  • Use of hygienic methods during and after milking each cow, including disinfection of the teats after each milking.
  • A tailored dry cow programme.

Your farm staff should understand these measures and why they are important. Dairy NZ has developed the Healthy Udder tools to make this easy.
