Summer Mastitis Risk Highlighted

25 August 2014

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.
