Bovine mastitis is the foremost endemic infectious disease of dairy cattle and remains a major challenge to the UK and global dairy industries. As well as being financially the most important disease of dairy cattle, mastitis is also important in terms of cow welfare and the sustainability of dairy farming.

Our research has led to the design and national implementation of a new approach to mastitis control on British dairy farms; the ‘DairyCo Mastitis Control Plan’. This programme, which commenced in 2009, has been implemented on farms holding >10-15% of all British dairy cows. The uptake of the scheme is continually increasing and is estimated to generate savings to the British dairy industry of the order of £3M per annum.
