Introduction Mastitis control is based upon adoption of preventive control strategies including good milking hygiene, the use of properly functioning milking equipment, provision of clean and dry housing areas, sound nutritional programs and proper identification and treatment of cows that are infected with subclinical and clinical mastitis. Worldwide, many dairy farmers have adopted these procedures and produce high quality milk. However, mastitis remains the most common and costly disease of… Expand
Evaluating the effectiveness of two bovine mastitis vaccines and their influences on oxidant and antioxidant capacities of milk
TLDR
Investigating the efficacy of two commercial mastitis vaccines and their influence on oxidant and antioxidant capacities of milk samples in a dairy farm observed no significant difference in the abovementioned variables, however, it is possible that applyingmastitis vaccines within the specific conditions may have positive effects considering the results of previous studies. Expand
Trends in therapeutic and prevention strategies for management of Bovine Mastitis: An overview
TLDR
Given the limitations of breeding programs, including genetic selection to improve resistance against infectious diseases including mastitis, it is imperative to have the availability of an effective broad-spectrum, preferably cross-protective, vaccine capable of protecting against bovine mastitis for reduction in the incidence of bovines mastitis as well as interrupting the potential cross-species transmission to humans.

INCIDENCE AND CONTROL OF INFECTIOUS BACTERIA IN BOVINE MILK
TLDR
For successful control of the infectious bacterial diseases in bovine milk, it is mandatory to follow preventive measures such as proper hygienic procedures regarding animal husbandry and handling, following vaccination programs against bacterial diseases, reporting of the notifiable diseases to the health authorities, meticulous inspection of the consistency and color of milk and pasteurization of milk. Expand
Progress in the development of mastitis vaccines
TLDR
In the last few years, in order to identify the antigens that can be used to induce a protective immune response by a DNA vaccine in cattle; a series of plasmids and recombinant proteins that represent some of the major virulence factors of this bacterium S. aureus are produced. Expand
A PRELIMINARY SURVEY OF STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS INFECTION IN GOATS WITH MASTITIS IN “NOUQRA” VALLEY OF ASWAN GOVERNORATE, SOUTH EGYPT
Prevalence of mastitis in goats located in Nouqra valley, Aswan Governorate, by indirect method (California Mastitis Test) in paralleling with culturing and molecular (PCR) procedures for detectionExpand
Precision Dairy Farming Technology Solutions for Detecting Dairy Cow Disease to Improve Dairy Cow Well-Being
TLDR
This research evaluated the use of activity, lying behavior, reticulorumen temperature, and rumination time determined by precision dairy farming technologies to detect transition cow diseases including hypocalcemia, ketosis, and metritis. Expand
Molecular characterization of tetracycline-resistant genes in Staphylococcus aureus isolated from dairy cows and she-camels suffering from subclinical mastitis.
TLDR
High level of similarities were found between these genes isolated from different stains and their corresponding reference sequences retrieved from the GeneBank by applying the multiple sequence alignment and the phylogenetic analysis. Expand
A Review of Mastitis Control Practices
TLDR
This chapter discusses cow hygiene practices, methods of application, and practical applications of antibiotics and vaccines in the context of milking practices. Expand
Candidate SNP of CACNA2D1 Gene Associated with Clinical Mastitis and Production Traits in Sahiwal (Bos taurus indicus) and Karan Fries (Bos taurus taurus × Bos taurus indicus)
TLDR
These observations and their differential association with the incidence of mastitis and production traits can be utilized as an aid to selection for simultaneous improvement of both antagonistic traits; however, validation of results on large number of animals is warranted. Expand
Phylogenetic and antibiotic resistance variance amongst mastitis causing E. coli : the key to effective control
TLDR
The author examines the impact of mastitis on dairy herds, research aim and objectives, and methods for isolation, identification, antibiotic resistance determination, serotyping and genetic fingerprinting in relation to E. coli mastitis vaccines. Expand
