PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF MASTITIS OF DAIRY COWS
August 18, 2022
A lot of dairy farms in Ukraine were affected by the ongoing war. Thousands of Russian missile attacks led to a significant increase in caw’s stress level and as a result of the stress their immune system got weaker. Mastitis, which always has been a problem, became even a more important issue. The online training was conducted by BRIDGES to representatives of the Ukrainian agricultural associations uniting dairy producers, their current members and potential members whose farms suffered from the russian aggression against Ukraine.
The US Speaker, Pamela L. Ruegg, DVM, MPVM, David J. Ellis Professor of Antimicrobial Resistance & Large Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Michigan State University, discussed the issue of prevention and treatment of mastitis on dairy cows that suffered during the active fighting.
The training materials were tailored to the current situation on the Ukrainian farms and with consideration of the local specifics, such as availability of the treatment products, typical procedures practiced by the local dairy farmers, etc.
