The objective of the current observational study was to determine the potential associations between cow factors, clinical mastitis (CM) etiology, and concentrations of select acute phase proteins and cytokines in milk from affected quarters of cows with CM. Cows with CM (n=197) were grouped based on systemic disease severity, milk culture result, parity, days in milk (DIM), previous CM occurrence, and season of the year when CM occurred. Concentrations of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein… CONTINUE READING
