Environmental streptococci are frequently isolated from bovine mastitis in dairy cows with only limited information available on the antimicrobial susceptibility of these organisms. A total of 362 environmental streptococci isolated from cases of bovine mastitis from the central San Joaquin Valley of California over a 3-yr period were used in the study. Overall, 39.9% of the strains tested were Streptococcus uberis, 42.2% were Streptococcus dysgalactiae, and 11.1% were Enterococcus spp. The… CONTINUE READING
