Abstract:
Epidemiological risk factors influencing the incidence of clinical coliform mastitis among dairy cattle reared under the small holder system of the state were investigated in this study. Occurrence of clinical mastitis was found to be more among animals in early stage of lactation having low average milk production, being reared under intensive system of rearing and animals kept on concrete floor. Higher the parity, more were the chance for coliform mastitis. Most of the animals were belonged to younger age and had no previous occurrence of mastitis. The practice of udder washing, absence of pre milking teat dipping and post milking disinfection favoured higher incidence of mastitis. Small holder livestock system is the backbone of the dairy industry in India. Coliform mastitis among dairy cows reared under this system is of foremost economic importance.
