Growth inhibition of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae during involution of the bovine mammary gland: relation to secretion composition.

Abstract

Mammary secretions from 12 Holstein dairy cows were collected to evaluate growth inhibition of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae during involution and during physiologic transitions of the mammary gland. Mammary secretions obtained during late lactation poorly inhibited growth of E coli and K pneumoniae. However, as involution progressed, mammary… (More)
