Incidence and molecular identification of pathogens in mastitis milk of goats
Abiramy A, Ramesh PT and Basava Reddy K
Goat milk is considered to have better digestibility, alkalinity, buffering capacity and certain therapeutic values in human nutrition. Mastitis is considered as an important economic trait that causes great reduction in milk production and increases morbidity and mortality. A total of 200 milk samples were collected from goats of different breeds. Pure cultures of various Bacterial pathogens like Staphylococcus, E. coli, Mycoplasma spp were isolated. The determination of Bacteriological Status (BS) of milk samples is regarded as a “Gold Standard” for the determination of the udder health status. All the bacterial pathogens isolated from milk samples were confirmed by PCR. A total of 157 Staphylococci spp. isolates, 7 Enterobacter spp. and 8 Mycoplasma spp. isolates were confirmed as positive with PCR.
