Clinical mastitis is when we see visible changes to milk, the gland, or worse when the cow can become sick with it.

We really need to understand when we are seeing clinical mastitis at herd level. We need to look at three areas to tackle it:

  • 1 The environment of the cow and the build-up of bacteria in it.
  • 2 The teat end function.
  • 3 The immunity of the cow.
  • In this video, I look at how when we investigate clinical mastitis we need to look at each of these three areas.
