Empower Udder Health: Hygiene, Nutrition, and Probiotics for Premium Milk Quality.
Mastitis, particularly sub-clinical mastitis, is a prevalent inflammatory condition of the mammary gland in dairy cows, often resulting from bacterial infections. Unlike clinical mastitis, which manifests visible symptoms, sub-clinical mastitis is harder to detect, leading to reduced milk yield and quality due to elevated somatic cell counts (SCC). The economic losses from this condition are significant, stemming from decreased milk production, veterinary costs, and potential culling of affected animals. Hygiene plays a pivotal role in preventing mastitis; regular cleaning of udders and milking equipment, as well as maintaining clean bedding, can significantly reduce the risk. Nutrition is equally crucial; a balanced diet ensures the cow’s immune system is robust, making it less susceptible to infections. Essential minerals and vitamins, including biotin and sulfur, bolster udder health and immunity. Additives like MOS (Mannan-oligosaccharides), Beta Glucan, and Grape Polyphenol extract have been shown to enhance the immune response, thereby reducing SCC. Probiotics, including Aspergillus oryzae, Lactobacillus, Bacillus subtilis, and Bacillus licheniformis, play a role in improving gut health, which indirectly boosts udder immunity. A healthy gut can better absorb nutrients, leading to improved milk quality and quantity. In summary, a combination of good hygiene practices, balanced nutrition, and the inclusion of specific minerals, vitamins, and probiotics can significantly mitigate the risks and impacts of sub-clinical mastitis in dairy cows.
