Mastitis and milk quality

Expertise

All members of the M-team are involved in scientific research emphasizing on fundamental as well as practical issues related to udder health and milk quality. Heifer mastitis, the role of the non-aurus staphylococci for bovine udder health, selective dry cow therapy and the use of antimicrobials on dairy herds are some of the topics we are working on.
