Mastitis in dairy cows is an infectious condition as a result of pathogens entering the udder through the teat canal. Depending on the bacteria involved, the infection may be contagious and affect other cows in the herd as a result of transfer from cow to cow by milk contamination during the milking process. Please listen to Dr Pamela Ruegg’s Global Dairy Expo 2020 presentation or read her papers on mastitis online to help with an understanding of the condition we refer to as mastitis. Ruegg refers to contagious bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus agalactiae and also to the especially nasty form of mastitis that they experience with Mycoplasma bovis.
