Event Title

Identification of pathogens of subclinical mastitis and its treatment in dairy cows at the lactation stage in some commercial farms for milk production in Kosovo

Session

Food Science and Technology

Description

Subclinical mastitis in cows causes reduction in the quantity of milk and increasing the number of bacteria and somatic cells. In the research were included 7 farms of dairy cows in 5 municipalities of Kosovo, where were identified from 3 cows with subclinical mastitis from each farm, based on CMT test with 3+++. The milk samples were sent to the laboratory for microbiological analysis and it results that 31.57% of the samples were negative while 68.43% positive, of which 69.20% with Staphylococcus aureus and 30.80 % with Escherichia coli. Cows were treated with antibiotics according to antibiogram for 3 days and after 21 days were recovered samples for microbiological analysis. It results that cure was done at 28.57% with Staphylococcus aureus and 75% with Escherichia coli. The treatment of subclinical mastitis with Staphylococcus aureus in the phase of lactation however, can reduce economic losses which can reach up to 26.34%.
