Abstract:

The present study “Cultural and Biochemical studies of subclinical mastitis in cows “ in and around Hyderabad” was undertaken to diagnose the subclinical mastitis in cows, was carried out during a period of 7 months i.e., February to August, 2015. To diagnose subclinical mastitis (SCM), a total of 534 quarter milk samples from 136 apparently healthy cows of three local dairy farms and individual holdings were collected and subjected to cultural and biochemical (IMViC) test, for isolation of etiological agents. According to cultural and biochemical (IMViC) test Staphylococcus spp., were most prevalent followed by Streptococcus spp., and Escherichia coli. Among the Staphylococcus spp. isolated, coagulase positive organisms were more prevalent (37.31%) compared to coagulase negative Staphylococcus spp. (CoNS) (19.4%)
