Mastitis in the breeding ground

High quality milk can only be obtained from healthy ones. A serious problem in breeding cattle is a disease of flies, such as mastitis. Matsitis can be affected by different period of lactation, drying time and dry periods. In the first case, the highest quality products are due to mitigation, as the enhanced maternal glands are very sensitive to the negative factors.


Mastitis are effective adverse-pathogenic bacteria, various types of fungi that can penetrate the breast milk in endogenous and exogenous ways, to introduce tissues and cause inflammatory process. Since mastitis is inhabited everywhere, the fight against the disease is of great importance.


Disease is characterized by deterioration of the general condition of the animal, rising temperature, discharge, breast feeding of breast feeding, and deterioration of milk nutritional value. The more frequent prevalence of subclinical (hidden) mastitis, which occurs without any external clinical signs for a period of time, which in most cases leads to termination of milk secretion and atrophy of the quadriceps.


One of the main causes of mastitis distribution is the unsatisfactory veterinary-sanitary conditions for keeping the buckets. In addition, the source of infection is the damage of the pastry technology (milking apparatus, sharp hands, contaminated chair / napkin). In case of wrong age, mechanical damage of drops may occur, which is a facilitating factor for mastitis development.


The damage caused by mastitis is determined by falling productivity. In the milk of the infected fats reduced fat content, acidity, cassine count, dry substance, milk sugar, calcium. The damage caused by subclinical masters increases the risk of breastfeeding and milk absorbing newborn calves, processing dairy products and the danger of human health, as it contains pathogenic microbes and their toxins.


There are many means for the treatment and prophylaxis of mastitis, mainly antibiotics that do not always provide high therapeutic effect. Therefore, the treatment of mastitis and prophylactic drugs that have a wide range of antimicrobial action and cause natural and specific resistance to the organism, has a great practical significance.


In recent years, there has been some success in the struggle against fatty mastitis and effective anti-inflammatory drugs are offered.
