Importance of Bovine mastisis in Advance Dairy Research


Advances in Dairy Research Open access is a leading peer reviewed journal that promotes rigorous studies in the field of dairy research. It contributes immensely to advance knowledge in this field by covering vast areas of cell biology and endocrinology of lactation; animal husbandry, milk production, composition, preservation, processing and separation; biotechnology and food science. The Journal aspires to provide a platform for the dissemination of research to the International scientific/ scholarly community.

The journal serves the interest of both practicing clinicians and researchers. Both basic research and clinical papers can be submitted. In addition to original papers, we are launching a range of new manuscript types, including research articles, review articles, case reports, short communications and commentaries on relevant topics. Case reports are also acceptable. Controversial techniques, issues on health policy and social medicine are discussed and serve as useful tools for encouraging debate.

Bovine mastitis is an infectious disease of the mammary glands of dairy cattle such as cows. It is worldwide in distribution and causes economic loss to the dairy handlers. This disease is mainly caused by coagulase negative bacteria such as Streptococcus agalactiae, Staphylococc us aureus and others bacteria which retained on the teat of cow i.e. E. coli, Streptococcus uberis. These bacteria mainly enter s the mammary glands of cow through their teat canal, where they colonize, proliferate, release toxin and damage the mammary glands cell. After proliferation an increase in Lactose dehydrogenase (LDH) activity shows the infections and also the somatic cell, inflammatory cytokinen.

Bovine mastitis is detected by California mastitis method, which is used as a preliminary detection test and cost effective. Bovine mastitis is treated by intramammary infusion of ointments by intramuscularly/ intravenously and by suitable antibiotics such as steptomycin, ampicillin, Penicillin.
