Mastitis is swelling of the udder in dairy animals. It is caused by bacteria which enter through the teats. Our farmer connect Sachin who owned 20 cows, discovered one fine day that one of his cows started giving less milk. He could not find the cause for this problem in his dairy farm. A few days later two more of his cows started producing less milk. He decided to keep them under observation for a few days. Soon he found that one cow was producing watery milk and the other two gave milk with flakes. On investigating more, Sachin found that this kind of poor milk was coming out from specific quarters and not the entire udder.
A month passed by and yet Sachin was not able to figure out why this was happening in his dairy farm. In the process he lost almost 30 percent of milk produced from these three cows. He had to discard the poor quality milk as it was not acceptable to customers. His earning from milk sales had reduced by 30%. Not just milking cows but even heifers which had calved for the first time had also started showing similar symptoms in his dairy farm. This is a common story in many dairy farms. They are affected severely by this bacterial infection of the udder called mastitis.
When Sachin came to Teplu for guidance on dairy farming, we gave him a comprehensive understanding of the types of mastitis and their causes. He learnt scientific processes step by step.
