In India dairy sector is the largest contributor to the agriculture Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In terms of output, milk is now the single largest agricultural commodity in India. India ranks first in milk production accounting for 18.5% world production achieving a annual growth rate of 6.25% contributing about 500,000 crores. Mastitis is one of the most important infections of dairy animals affecting quality and quantity of milk, drug costs and discarded milk. In the dairy industry, antibiotic treatment is the key strategy for treatment of bovine mastitis. However indiscriminate use of antimicrobials results in development of multidrug resistance in microbes and the appearance of resistant bacteria in food chain. Therefore, there is an urgent need to find effective tool to apply specific antibiotic which can effectively prevent and control bovine mastitis. With this objective in the present study antibiotic sensitivity test is carried out for mastitis milk samples to treat mastitis at early stage and to control development of drug resistance in microbes.
