Mastitis is one of the most common diseases in dairy cattle and it is also one of the most costly, resulting in reduced milk production and extra treatment costs.
This invaluable book covers all aspects of the subject and is essential reading for veterinary surgeons, farmers and stockmen.
Andrew Biggs considers what mastitis is, what causes it and how to control it. He provides an in-depth examination of the milking machine and the milking routine in the context of the incidence and spread of mastitis.
The author also discusses summer mastitis and udder and teat conditions predisposing to mastitis. Includes more than 200 colour photographs.
