Influence of subclinical mastitis during early lactation on reproductive parameters.
Our objective was to determine the effects of mastitis during early lactation on the reproductive performance of Jersey cows. From 1986 to 1997, quarter foremilk samples were collected every 4 to 8Expand

Adherent and invasive Escherichia coli are associated with persistent bovine mastitis.
Bovine mastitis caused by Escherichia coli has traditionally been viewed as a transient infection. However, E. coli can also cause clonal persistent intramammary infection (IMI) in dairy cows. InExpand

Association of CXCR2 polymorphisms with subclinical and clinical mastitis in dairy cattle.
The ability to identify objectively cows that are more or less susceptible to mastitis has been a long-standing goal. Genetic markers associated with inflammatory responses during mastitis could aidExpand
