AUSTRIA – Increased pressure from mastitis through summer months can be tackled with cow cooling equipment, Austrian dairy farmers are being advised.
Every year, the Austrian land chamber notes a rise in mastitis risk through summer months.
This is on farms with or without mastitis problems.
The cost of a mastitis case can be as high as €600 per cow, according to land chamber experts.
Installing fans can improve cow behaviour and has obvious heat stress abatement benefits, experts added.
