Bovine mastitis remains as the major infectious disease that affects dairy cattle throughout the world and results in considerable economic losses to dairy farmers. The present study was undertaken to screen dairy cattle of two organized farms using two cow side tests such as electrical conductivity test and the widely used California Mastitis Test. A total of 261 Quarter milk samples from 77 cows were screened cow side for subclinical mastitis using California Mastitis Test (CMT) and electrical conductivity meter (EC). Correlation between the CMT score and corresponding conductivity was analyzed and the use of EC as an alternative in screening of subclinical mastitis is discussed.
