The primary objective of this study was to describe and compare anatomical characteristics of teats before and after machine milking adjusted for parity and teat location (front versus rear). The second objective was to determine if selected milking and anatomical characteristics of teats were associated with occurrence of clinical mastitis. To address objective 1, a cross-sectional study was done to describe and compare teat dimensions before and after milking (n=1,751 teats from 445 cows). To… CONTINUE READING
