Wondering about the economics of five days of intramammary treatment for all non-severe cases of clinical mastitis? UW-Extension Milk Quality Veterinarian Pam Ruegg and Extension Dairy Management Specialist Victor Cabrera conducted a study to develop a decision tree to evaluate the economic impact of different durations of intramammary treatment for the first case of milk or moderate clinical mastitis occurring in early lactation. To learn more about their study please visit their Journal of Dairy Science article Decision Tree Analysis of Treatment Strategies For Mild & Moderate Cases of Clinical Mastitis Occurring in Early Lactation.

UW-Milk Quality promotes an integrated, team-based approach to best manage udder health and milk quality. Producing high quality milk is not a one-person job. It takes farmers and their local dairy advisors to be able to evaluate, manage and improve milk quality. At UW-Milk Quality, we develop tools and resources to help dairy producers meet their milk quality goals and increase farm profitability.
